It is worth noting that Kruger indicated to us in a fax last month that he was willing to consider working with hunting clients on a contingency basis, but he doubted if that would work out, as South African law limits the amount an attorney can take for an action to 20 percent of a successful claim. Since most hunting claims are relatively small, the return to the law firm would likely be too low to proceed that way. The alternative is to work with him on an hourly basis. He says hourly fees for legal work are set by law in South Africa.
Locating a suitable attorney in South Africa, we think, is going to have a dramatic effect on the industry down that way, which has grown so quickly and haphazardly of late that it has become the world's leading source of hunting complaints. Anyone who uses the attorney listed above (or any other attorney) to file a successful suit against as errant member of the South African hunting community is urged to get in touch with us.
