What are Conditional Fee Agreements?

A Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) is an alternative source of litigation funding in which you only have to pay fees to your solicitor if your case is successful.

These arrangements are commonly referred to as ‘no win, no fee’ because you do not have to pay your solicitor anything if your claim is unsuccessful.

If your case is won, the success fee payable to your lawyer cannot be recovered from the other side and will therefore be deducted from the damages you are awarded.

This deduction will be capped as a percentage of the compensation you receive, so even if your pay-out is too low to cover your legal costs you still retain most of your damages.

If you win, you may be able to recover disbursements (expenses) from your opponent. Conversely, if your case is lost, you may be liable for some expenses.
