Court of Appeal
The Issues: The Claimant retained solicitors to pursue her personal injury claim. Their retainer letter to her said: "If your claim is disputed by your opponent and you decide not to pursue your claim then we will not make a charge for the work we have done to date." No CFA was ever signed. Did this retainer letter amount to a Conditional Fee Agreement so as to be caught by Section 58 of the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990 and therefore unenforceable because it did not comply with that Act or the CFA Regulations in force at the time?
