If the outcome of the claim or case is favourable to the client, his lawyer is entitled to a pre-decided or fixed percentage of the recovery or compensation paid to the client.5 In this agreement, since the lawyer receives only a financial refund, which depends on the payment or up to the payment that the client receives, is the reverse of the agreement, That if the client loses, neither the lawyer nor the client receives any money.6 These types of occasional fee agreements are usually reserved for cases of bodily injury or staff compensation, but can be used in any case when damages of money are required for any form of violation, which is why determining the nature of lawyers` fees is a first decision, who during the lawyer`s counsel. [5] No agreement can be reached whose terms could induce the lawyer to unduly restrict or provide services to the client in a manner contrary to the client`s interest.

Otherwise, the client may have to negotiate additional assistance in the middle of a procedure or transaction. However, it is appropriate to define the volume of services in the light of the creditworthiness of the customer.

Applicable law may impose restrictions on contingency fees, for example. B a cap on the percentage allowed, or require a lawyer to offer his clients an alternative basis for the fee. The applicable law may also apply to situations other than a possible tax, for example.B. the State rules on taxes on certain tax matters.
