We recognise that legal costs, particularly in litigation can be significant and, in some cases, prevent access to justice. As a firm one of our core commitments is to make high quality legal services available to individuals with meritorious claims on reasonable and accessible terms.
In some matter types, including asbestos claims and sex abuse claims we operate on a “no win-no fee basis” and seek only to recover our costs in the event of a successful claim. In other types of matters we will seek only to be paid at the conclusion of the claim, or will operate on a partly no win, no fee basis. We invite all clients and prospective clients to have a straightforward, and honest conversation with us about legal fees.
Prior to commencing any action on your behalf we will provide detailed and clear advice as to the merits of your claim as well as a written costs disclosure setting out the likely costs of each stage of the litigation process.
We have developed a fee policy in respect of each of our core practice areas.
