Frequently asked questions

When should I get advice from a dispute resolution lawyer?

If you are 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 with you to find out all the relevant facts about your case, as well as consider all the key documents and correspondence, 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 will help you advance your claim as economically as possible. But there are times when our advice may be that your case is not strong and we’ll endeavour to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible so that legal costs are kept down and remain in proportion to the amount/issue in dispute.

How can I pay for my case?

We’ll always explore all possible ways of funding your case. Your lawyer will be able to explain your options in greater detail at your initial meeting and, if appropriate, during the running of your case.

Firstly, you should check whether you’re covered by legal expenses insurance (also known as before-the-event insurance). This type of insurance is normally to be found on household or motor insurance policies, but you should check all your insurance policies, premium bank accounts and credit cards as these can sometimes provide it too. If you are covered, then you should notify the insurance provider straight away.

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

In some cases, we may instead be able to act on a conditional fee agreement basis (“CFA”). Before agreeing to fund your case with a CFA, we’ll have to assess your case carefully. If we agree to act under a CFA and you win your case, a percentage deduction will be taken 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.
