What is No Win No Fee*?
No Win No Fee* means you don’t need to worry about paying for upfront legal fees. Quite simply, if a solicitor takes on your case and you don’t win any compensation, you don’t pay them their fees. There’s no catch. If you don’t win, you don’t pay.

How does No Win No Fee* work?
No Win No Fee* arrangements (also known as a conditional fee agreement, or CFA) were introduced to give those who couldn’t afford legal representation access to the justice they needed to make a compensation claim.
Solicitors work on a success fee*, rather than charging any upfront costs.
What percentage do No Win No Fee* solicitors take?
If you win, our solicitors take a success fee from the final compensation of up to 25%.
This is always discussed with you before the claim process begins so there are no nasty surprises or unexpected costs at the end.
