Claim for reimbursement of costs and fees in case of litigation

in Germany

Court Costs and legal fees depend on the value of the matter and are determined by the Court fees act (GKG) and the lawyer’s compensation act (RVG). In the judgement the court has to decide about the claim for reimbursement. The winning party has the claim of reimbursement of its costs and fees against the other party and therefore – basically - it isn’t economically absurd to sue an invoice of a few hundred or thousand Euro.
