Germany strikes down ban on contingency fees



Tony Sebok has the story of the German Constitutional Court decision, which asks the legislature to create exceptions to the country's ban on contingent fees.

However, as Sebok also notes, Germany already permitted third-party litigation financing that created financial arrangements that were economically identical to plaintiffs as contingency fees, so questions whether a change in the law will really have any effect.
