For several years now, the Ukrainian law society has been facing an important and in some cases hyperbolized question about the fee for success. The newspaper Yuridicheskaya Practika has discussed the position expressed on this issue by the Grand Chamber of the Supreme Court in its decision of May 12, 2020 in case по 904/4507/18. AP’s partner, Yuriy Artyukh, has expressed his opinion on the position of the Grand Chamber of the Supreme Court in a comment to the newspaper Yurydychna Praktika, № 40-41 (1189-1190) dated October 6, 2020. The author pointed out that the ECHR has never questioned the success fee as a possible fee practice for legal services provided. In its decision, the Grand Chamber of the Supreme Court rightly stated that the fee for success is nothing more than a suspensive circumstance, ie a circumstance with which the parties have linked the emergence of their rights and obligations and for which it is unknown whether it will occur or not.
