ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the author's opinion on the decision of the British House of Lords about success fees. The House decided that success fees payable by unsuccessful media defendants are not an unwarranted restriction of the freedom of expression provided by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Model Naomi Campbell entered into a conditional fee agreement which included an uplift as a success fee for the litigation in the House of Lords even though she could apparently have afforded to fund the litigation without such an agreement.
