Our fees

 

The cost of making a legal claim might seem daunting. But don’t worry. Our flexible funding options will help you stay in control.

 

From ‘no win no fee’ terms to ‘fixed fees’ and ‘after-the-event’ insurance, you can decide what’s best for your specific circumstances.

Flexible funding options

Legal expenses insurance – do your existing insurance policies include legal cover? It’s worth checking whether your insurer might pay your legal fees. Ask them if we can represent you.

 

Pay as you go – you may want to agree an hourly rate or arrange a fixed fee in advance. We can sometimes do a combination of both, with fixed fees for certain parts of your claim.

 

Conditional fee agreements (CFA) – you might prefer ‘no win no fee’ or ‘no win low fee’ terms. The latter involves paying a minimum fee if you lose and a higher fee if you’re successful. All CFAs involve a ‘success fee’ when you win.

 

Litigation funding – this is when a third party pays your fees for a share of your compensation. If you lose your case they lose their investment. We will introduce you to a funder if this option appeals and your claim is suitable.

 

Membership organisations – trade unions and professional organisations often offer legal expenses insurance. If you’re a member of one, ask them whether we can represent you.

 

After the event insurance (ATE) – if your case is unsuccessful you may have to pay the other party’s costs. Arranging ATE in advance will cover this amount. Third party litigation funders usually insist on this.

 

Expenses – remember that you’ll have to pay court expenses as well as the legal fees. And if you’ve used an expert or a barrister you’ll need to pay them immediately rather than after your claim is settled. Ask us whether we can help you with this.

 

We always consider funding options on a case-by-case basis. The more likely your case is to succeed the more flexible we can be.

 

We will need to assess your chances of success before agreeing to your preferred payment option. This initial groundwork is usually free of charge. Talk to us and we will see what we can do.
