Earlier this month, the BC Superior Court overruled a contingency fee arrangement (CFA) in an estate dispute and cut the lawyer’s fee from $9 million to $5 million.   

Goepel J. did so on the basis that “a contingency fee agreement is not a lottery ticket,” along WITH comments about the “integrity of the profession.” 

The BCSC decision is at http://www.canlii.org/en/bc/bcsc/doc/2013/2013bcsc374/2013bcsc374.html ;
