Good Question. In the US Legal Fees may be paid by the defendant/loser. But rarely if ever will a plaintiff be responsible for the legal fees of a defendant if they lose (do not establish) their case. I believe in England that a plaintiff has to pay the defendants fees if they can't make their claim. The effect this has is to make the courts a place where only the rich dare raise a claim, unless it's a certain winner. Just what is the law or convention when it comes to the payment of legal fees by opposite parties? Any experiences?
The losing side to most litigation in the DR must pay the winner?s ?legal fees? as calculated by using an outdated schedule of fees which bears little resemblance to the real legal fees incurred in the litigation.
