The Issues:The Claimant’s solicitors had signed a CFA with their Client prior to November 2005, but shortly before the end of the case it became apparent that the Defendant would challenge the validity of the CFA, so at the request of her solicitors, the Claimant signed a second CFA. The first CFA did not contain a success fee, but the second CFA provided for a success fee of 100% if the case went to trial. Was the second CFA enforceable and was it possible to apply a retrospective success fee?
