Yes, your lawyer can take a percentage of the damages earned in a lawsuit, but only if it meets the conditions of a complementary fee.
First of all, the supplementary fee must be included in the mandatory convention which must be signed between you and your lawyer from the beginning of the collaboration.
The supplementary fee shall then be fixed taking into account the following:
- Result obtained by the work of the lawyer
- Service rendered to you by the lawyer
- Your financial situation
Warning : fees fixed solely on the basis of the result obtained in court are prohibited. This method of remuneration may only concern a supplementary fee.
