A review of the civil litigation costs said that "no win, no fee" lawyers should not be able to enjoy "success fees" paid by the defendants, but they should receive a share of damages.
The review followed big increases in civil litigation costs in England and Wales in the past few years. It was found that in some cases, fees to lawyers surpassed damages by huge margins.
Lord Justice Jackson said that reforms in the concerned area could save people millions.
In his report, Lord Jackson stated, “Access to justice is important not only for claimants who have valid claims but also for defendants who have valid defences."
Currently, defendants pay success fees and bear the burden of bill for insurance against a failed claim.
Lord Justice Jackson recommended that there should be a 25 per cent limit on the share of damages paid to lawyers in a successful claim.
