Singapore Permits Conditional Fee Agreements Between Lawyers and Clients

16 Jun 2022 LegisWatch

With effect from 4 May 2022, lawyers in Singapore may enter into conditional fee agreements (“CFAs”) with clients in selected proceedings.

CFAs are agreements under which lawyers receive the whole or a part of their fees only in certain specified circumstances as agreed with the client. Such agreements can also provide for an uplift on fees where the client’s claims or defences are successful or where certain mutually agreed outcomes are achieved.
