In a recent judgment in the South Gauteng High Court, the Deputy Judge President, the Honourable Mojapelo, dealt in detail with the history and present form of Contingency fee agreements. Finally we have a proper interpretation of the Contingency Fee Act and the very strict requirements in regard to proper compliance with the terms of the Act. It also highlights the protection afforded to the client, the Court's control of the relationship between attorney and client in matters where there are contingency arrangements and sets out in detail how one should go about having a settlement finalised/made an order of court in such matters.
