No win no fee

No win no fee – this term refers to an option of the Common Law system for entering into an agreement with your lawyer about performance of a court case and its payment, but not applicable in some legal systems, where lawyers are not allowed to work for free (expect for relatives or for people having the legal status to be in need), which applies to be the case if the client loses the case. Yet in many jurisdictions the lawyer’s fee could be agreed to be a percentage of the material interest of the claim, bearing the minimum rates per the local legislation, or to be paid on several installments, where applicable.
