Overseas Contingent Fees

(Hey, that rhymes.)

Tony Sebok (Brooklyn, but soon to be Cardozo), has a thorough and helpful Writ piece exploring the recent German Constitutional Court decision holding that "under certain narrow circumstances, there was a constitutional right to be able to bring a civil action by means of a contingency fee contract with a lawyer."  It includes a useful explanation of the lawsuit-financing companies that exist in Germany.

As he points out, it will be an interesting experiment to follow.
