Project support and commercial arbitration we charge at hourly rates. In those cases, we cannot offer our client a fixed price, as it is impossible to calculate the amount of time, which we may spend on the project or arbitration. When working at hourly rates, we send our client electronic daily/weekly/monthly (at client’s option) reports specifying the amount of time and work.
