The government has commissioned an academic review of “no win no fee arrangements” in order to assess whether conditional fee agreements, and contingency fees in employment tribunals, are operating in the interests of justice. The review will focus on personal injury, employment and defamation/privacy claims. In addition to this review, the Master of the Rolls is also planning a costs review and we are waiting for the response to the consultation on CFAs in defamation and privacy cases which closed at the end of October last year.
