New model CFA
Posted: in by Michelle Barron.
From 1 April new rules on conditional fee agreements (CFAs) come into force. Clients who enter into a CFA on or after 1 April will have to pay the success fee and any after-the-event (ATE) premium from their damages. These changes have been brought about by sections 44 and 46 of the Legal Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 and the Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2013.
