The Issue

The past decade has witnessed dramatic increase in the use of private contingency fee attorneys on behalf of the state. While State use of private sector legal services makes sense in  some instances, there is currently little transparency regarding the use of private sector attorneys by the State, creating a potential for abuse and conflict of interest.

The Solution

LRANY supports legislation which would create transparency, limit contingency fees, and codify recent case law requirements to ensure that the State remains in control of litigation when it hires contingency fee counsel.
