Is it possible to recover retrospective success fees? Read my article on the subject in the Solicitors Journal.

Johal is completely distinguishable.
Quite frankly it was appalling that they even tried IN MY OPINION given the private retainer that had been in place and the massive interims bills that had been levied
Routinely get retrospective and in this day of fixed success fees then should also apply as a matter contract – if the contract is retrospective then the fixed SF applies to all work undertaken pursuant to it. Therefore the retrospective SF should be allowed as per Nizami v Butt
Definitely agree. Retrospective success fees are recovered on a daily basis retainer permitting that is.
So Mr Gibbs the simple answer my friend is “YES”
