Frequently asked questions

When should I get advice from a dispute resolution lawyer?

If you’re involved in any kind of legal dispute, we would always recommend that you get advice as soon as possible rather than let the dispute escalate or remain unresolved.

Once we’ve had an opportunity to meet you and find out all the relevant facts, we’ll be able to assess whether you have a strong case or not.

If you have a case with good prospects of success, we’ll help you advance your claim as economically as possible. But there are times when our advice may be that your case isn’t strong, and we’ll endeavour to resolve the dispute as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Ultimately, we’ll try our best to achieve the optimum result for you given all the circumstances of your case and keep in mind ways of trying to settle the case so that legal costs are kept down.

How can I pay for my case?

We’ll always explore all possible ways of funding your case. Your solicitor will explain all available funding methods in greater detail at the initial meeting and, if appropriate, during the running of your case.

We check clients have the benefit of legal expenses insurance (also known as before-the-event insurance) before taking on a case. If you do have such cover then you should notify the insurance provider straight away.

Occasionally, we might be prepared to act on a conditional fee agreement (sometimes known as No Win No Fee). This will involve a percentage deduction from any compensation you receive.

There are some types of cases that we handle which you may be able to progress through a Third Party Funding arrangement. This type of arrangement is usually between a specialist funding company and more typically the claimant in a case. The third party funder agrees to pay some or all of your legal fees in exchange for a proportion of the damages that you recover from your opponent.

For privately paying clients we charge for work based on time spent on a case. At the outset of a case you will be provided with details of the relevant lawyers’ charging rates, as well as being provided with estimates of time and costs throughout the duration of your case for each specific stage of work.
