6. Certificate (fee arrangement)
The Court requires the Plaintiff and his Solicitor to sign a certificate stating that the action is not funded by any third party on the basis of a fee arrangement contingent upon the outcome of the litigation. This certificate must accompany the Writ. It is important to bear in mind that any fee arrangement contingent upon the outcome of the litigation (e.g. no-win-no-fee arrangement) are unlawful save for agreements entered into with the Legal Aid Department under the Supplementary Legal Aid Scheme established under the Legal Aid Ordinance (Cap. 91).
