FAQ: How much does it cost to go to court in China?

Project costs such as court fees and notarization are minimal in China.   

Legal fees are invoiced as blocks of time under the “general counsel” service found on the rate sheet. 

The size and number of the blocks of time would depend on the actual case and the judge involved.  So it’s hard to estimate in advance how much time is needed for a court case, but here are 3 ways ABL helps clients save money:

  1. The first step of any project is a case review.  If the lawyer feels a court case would not be effective, no additional fees are invoiced to the client.
  2. ABL offers various sized blocks. By invoicing in blocks, rather than a fixed fee, you only pay for what you need.
  3. Our rates are very competitive. The larger the block, the lower the per-hour rate.
