About this business activity

An individual seeking legal representation, but without the financial resources to pay an attorney, may enter into a conditional fee agreement (CFA). Under a CFA, the lawyer agrees to work for a reduced rate or no fee, contingent on the success of the case. If successful, the lawyer will receive a percentage of the damages awarded. CFAs are often used in personal injury cases, where the individual may not have the money to pay an attorney upfront, but could potentially receive a large sum if the case is successful.

Conditional Fee Agreement (Discounted)

This is an example of a discounted conditional fee agreement (CFA). It could serve as a useful starting point when drafting such an agreement, but will need to be tailored to your particular circumstances and needs. Read this CFA in conjunction with the integrated drafting notes.

What to watch out for

  • The agreement should be tailored to your particular circumstances and needs
