Conflit d'intérêt économique entre avocats et clients : la questions des honoraires
In the line of the agency question, the lawyer/client relationship cannot escape the risk of conflict of interests. This text broadly redefines the nature of this conflict, and links it to an important source of tension, i.e. fees. We study three types of billing : contingency fees, hourly, and alternative billing. Besides billing structures, we examine their influence on this latent conflict, and propose a few ways of managing and preventing tensions.
