Model conditional fee agreement

The Law Society's model conditional fee agreement (CFA) is in the process of being reviewed, and so is not currently published.

Solicitors using an old version should be aware that it does not reflect all of the recent changes to legislation, or case law, that may affect the viability of CFAs.

The model CFA and guidance were last updated in 2014. The model is intended for use in personal injury and clinical negligence claims.

The CFA will be reviewed in light of the court’s decision in Belsner v CAM Legal Services in October 2022.

We will issue a revised version in due course.

Thank you for your patience in the meantime.
