GENERAL TARIFF OR FEES FOR LEGAL PRACTITIONERS (USD) WITH EFFECT FROM APRIL 2021

Legal practitioners are professionally and legally obliged to charge fees for legal work which are fair and reasonable in all the circumstances. In order to assist the profession and the public in this regard and to seek a degree of uniformity and consistency, this tariff is recommended by the Council of the Law Society of Zimbabwe for application to all legal work undertaken by legal practitioners, save where some other tariff is applied by law or where the client has agreed to some other rate or basis of charging. Thus party and party fees in civil litigation, conveyancing fees, collection commissions and deceased estate administration fees are not covered by this tariff whereas legal practitioner and client fees in civil litigation and fees for criminal and general non-litigious work are covered. The recommended ranges are to be regarded as the ordinary fees
