As an occasional and generally regretful user of the legal system, I am an enthusiastic supporter of conditional fees.
I believe that these will concentrate lawyers' minds on the target rather than the route, lead to much earlier disclosure and contact between the parties' advisers, and encourage negotiated settlements where all advisers' fees would be paid, albeit at a lower rate.
For a change, lawyers would share and hence emphasise to clients the risks and costs of litigation.
