What is a conditional fee arrangement?

A CFA is an agreement whereby a solicitor and a client can agree to share the risk of the litigation by coming to a financial arrangement whereby part or sometimes all of the solicitors’ fees will only be payable by the client in the event of success.

If any of the defined success criteria agreed when the CFA is entered into is achieved (i.e. the case is won) a success fee will be payable by the client in addition to the normal fees.

What is a damages based agreement?

A DBA is an agreement whereby a solicitor and a client can agree to share the risk of litigation. Payment of solicitors’ fees, counsel fees and VAT by a client under a DBA is dependent on achieving defined success criteria agreed when the DBA is entered into, and is based on a percentage of the sum recovered from the losing party/opponent.
