At the same time, the British rule of legal cost allocation is applicable in many European countries. As a result, it is of policy relevance how their coexistence may be harmonized. This paper uses the litigation-contest framework to analyze the consequences of three different cost-allocation regimes if a plaintiff’s attorney is compensated on a contingent fee basis. We compare the equilibrium contest effort, justice, and payoffs for affected parties in the different regimes and find arguments in favor of not reimbursing contingent fees.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Baumann, Florian</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Baumann, Florian</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Contingent Fees Meet the British Rule : An Exploratory Study</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2012-01-20T08:07:21Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2010</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Public Choice ; 150 (2012), 3-4. - S. 499-510</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Friehe, Tim</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2012-01-20T08:07:21Z</dc:date> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
