Engagement period

Look for an attorney who focuses his or her practice on your type of legal question, or someone who lists this as a type of law they regularly practice. Your local bar association may have a referral program.

Engagement period

To a large extent, legal services are of a personal nature. Both the client and the lawyer require a working relationship which is based on trust and good chemistry. This is even more so where a longer term cooperation is envisaged.

Accordingly, Private Counsel is happy to agree on an initial ‘engagement period’ of two months (except in case of a project-based assignment). During such period any time spent will be charged at an hourly fee of no more than UGX200,000, USD100for foreign clients (VAT excluded). Following this ‘trial period’ the cooperation will continue if both sides so desire.
