What happens when you contact us?

  • Contact us

Contact our lawyers and explain your situation and the outcome you’d like to achieve.

  • Representation

Once our solicitors have assessed your claim, we will discuss the different options you may have and the strategy to achieve this.

  • Funding options

We will explain the different options available to you. Once agreed, we will work on your case and keep you up to date throughout.

How do I pay for my case?

Funding options.

Hodge Jones & Allen will always explore all possible ways of funding your case. There are examples of funding below and our fee earners will be able to explain these funding methods in greater detail at the initial meeting and, if appropriate, during the running of your case.

We check with clients whether they have the benefit of 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 we would always advise you to check all your insurance policies, premium bank accounts and credit cards as these can sometimes provide it too. If you do have such cover then you should notify the insurance provider straight away.

If you cannot afford to progress your case we might be prepared to act on a conditional fee agreement basis (“CFA”).  Before agreeing to fund your case with a CFA, we must 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.

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.

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 have 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 will 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 will endeavour to resolve the dispute as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Ultimately, we will 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 and remain in proportion to the amount/issue in dispute.

Occasionally, we might be prepared to act on a conditional fee agreement basis. This will involve a percentage deduction from any compensation you receive. We may also be able to broker after-the-event insurance to provide cover against liability for the costs of the opposing party if your case is unsuccessful.

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.
