Seaga v Harper (No 2)

Privy Council

“After-the-event insurance premiums and success fees under conditional fee agreements entered into with English counsel and solicitors were not recoverable as costs by a successful party in an appeal to the Privy Council from Jamaica whose domestic law did not permit conditional fee agreements or allow for a successful party’s expenditure on after-the-event premiums to be an allowable disbursement.”
