New Requirement for Retainer Agreements
four of the Appellate Divisions recently adopted a new rule governing
contingent fees in claims and actions for personal injury and wrongful death.
The new rule is mandatory. The rules for the respective Appellate Divisions
are: First Judicial Department (22 N.Y.C.R.R. Section
603.7[e]); Second Judicial Department (22 N.Y.C.R.R.
Section 691.20[e]); Third Judicial Department (22 N.Y.C.R.R. Section
806.13[c]); and Fourth Judicial Department (22 N.Y.C.R.R.
Section 1022.31[c]). Lawyers should be aware that the language varies slightly
among the different Judicial Departments. Please note, these changes do NOT
apply to medical malpractice cases, which are NOT subject to the new rules and
must be handled in accordance with NYS Judiciary Law 474-a.
