Ok, that's the reason in favor of such a high amount. Are there no 
contras then? I know that in some countries the maximum fee is important 
when it gets to liability but AFAIK this is not the case in Germany (at

...if not, I'd say 1,000 Euro is fair.

What initial fee are you going to propose at the formation, anyway?
