This type of agreement is also referred to as a conditional fee agreement (CFA).
If a solicitor is successful in attaining an awarded settlement, they will take a success fee from the final settlement amount. By law, this fee is capped at 25%, however, this is something you and your solicitor can discuss in greater detail upon meeting. However, it is worth noting that this agreement also means that if your solicitor does not obtain a settlement on your behalf you will not be expected to pay your fees.
