No win no fee costs agreements Information for consumers version 2 6 December 2012 Level 30, 400 George Street, Brisbane Qld 4000 PO Box 10310 Brisbane, Adelaide Street Qld 4000 T (07) 3406 7737 (Brisbane) The law firm is required to provide the client with a written report on the progress of the case and a written report on the legal costs incurred by the client (s269). [7] Additional disclosure is required on a s264-by-right period when legal practice negotiates the settlement of a disputed case; [8] and under s265, if a cost agreement involves an increase fee. [9] There should be a meeting with the client to discuss the cost agreement. In particular, professional and payment costs, estimates and party and party fees should be explained to the client. The degree of explanation required depends on the level of sophistication of the client. The increase charges were introduced in 1993 in New South Wales, but were discontinued in 2004. They proved to be very problematic because practitioners used them in areas where there were little or no risks. Since many conditional deductions are used in damages actions against insurers and most of these actions are settled, which is a form of success, a salary increase has simply been awarded to practitioners. Each applicant should take into account the following before entering into a non-win contract – no fee agreement: a cost agreement may be conditional; it may provide that the payment of a portion or all legal costs depends on the success of the cost-related case (S283).

[14] However, there are certain legal issues for which a conditional cost agreement (s283)[15] is not permitted and an agreement on conditional costs may provide for the payment of an increase fee (s284). [16] Unforeseen taxes are expressly prohibited (s285). [17] The cost agreement must be made in writing, but may be accepted by a behavior (s282). [13] A cost agreement may include retention and advertising in one, taking into account the applicable provisions of the APA. I always recommend that retention and disclosure all be in one to simplify things as much as possible and avoid confusion and/or any procedural or file management issues.

While there is no legal reason, the most obvious answer would probably be due to marketing factors. The terms “conditional cost agreements” are considered by most consumers to be legal jargon and it does not have the same ring as no profit at no cost. Most complainants who do not make a profit without a pricing agreement are not at all aware of their official name. A push is where practitioners charge normal prices, but can then calculate a success fee at the end of the question.

Royalties for the increase were limited to conditional cost agreements for which “some or all of the legal costs depend on the success of the issue to which these costs relate” (s283 (1)). The increase fee can be up to 25% of the usual fee. In short, if the legal fees for a case reach $100,000.00, the practitioner, whose cost agreement allows it, may charge a premium of up to $25,000.00 if the case is successfully resolved.
