Eckstein & Partner is a network of independent companies specializing in facilitating business relations between Western Europe and the former Soviet Union states. The network maintains a small permanent staff that collaborates with non-payroll employees across various locations. Standard tasks within the network's expertise are managed with full client responsibility. Pricing primarily relies on hourly rates, and for predefined standard tasks, fixed prices are offered based on experience. New clients are requested to make an advance payment to cover estimated costs for the next two months, with refunds available for cancellations before the advance is exhausted.
