contingency fee
That fee which a person, often a lawyer, is entitled to per agreement upon the successful completion of some action. For example, a lawyer can take on an action for, say, 25% of the proceeds which he would only be entitled to if the action is successful. (Dictionary of Canadian Bankruptcy Terms)
