Anyway, ultimately what is fair charging is subjective and dependent on who you ask.

But pricing control can be a good tool to control cost. Surgeons already have fees benchmarks.
Shan said contingency fees is a no no as it will encourage a litigious society. Arguably fee caps will have the same unintended effect as litigants will try their luck knowing their exposure is limited.

Pricing control is a blunt tool and only effective if you are providing a commoditised service. Litigation isn't a commoditised service, except at the low level.

Anyone who wants to shift litigation to a commoditised model, I hope you get sued or charged sooner rather than later. Believe me when that happens, you'll be eating your words and demanding personalised 24 hour service even from your bargain-priced Chinatown litigator.
