No Win, Low Fee Agreements are a twist on the more well-known no win, no fee agreements and because of this are also know as hybrid CFA’s or discounted CFA’s. Under a No Win, Low Fee Agreement the client agrees to pay their solicitors a proportion (often half) of their normal hourly rate for working on resolving the dispute. If the dispute is won then the client will pay their solicitors the remaining proportion of their hourly rate together with an uplift. If the dispute is not won then the client will not have to pay the solicitors the remaining proportion of their hourly rate or any uplift.
This type of arrangement was first upheld in a case named Birmingham City Council v Foorde in 2009, and has become increasingly popular in recent years. We often act on this type of arrangement.
