Our fees

Normally we calculate the fees for our services according to the time spent on any one project. The hourly rate of our attorneys varies according to their professional experience and specific expert knowledge.

For the notary services we use the tariff of the Canton Basel-Stadt. For litigation matters, we use the fee tariff of the respective Canton, unless an agreement has been previously made to charge by time spent.

Our History

We at FROMER Attorney and Notary Offices are proud of our long history, resulting as we do from the amalgamation in 2011 of the two long and well-established offices, Fromer, Schultheiss & Staehelin (originally founded in 1941 by Dr. Leo Fromer) and Fischer & Megert (originally founded in 1973).
