It’s really important that you understand clearly what options you have to pay your legal costs. We are the 'Open Lawyers' and it’s important that we’re clear with you about how much you’ll pay.
There are a number of different options open to you to pay your legal costs. Some of these options are better suited to some types of legal cases, but your case handler will explain your options with you in detail and provide you the best possible options for your case.
Remember, not all of these options are available for all cases. It is our job to give you all the information and make sure that you understand all the options available for you to decide. If you are not sure about anything, please just ask.
Exploring the Funding Options Available
Information about No Win, No Fee Funding
You won’t pay any money upfront for your legal fees but you will have to pay for additional costs, known as Disbursements, like Court fees or expert reports fees. This can be covered by an insurance product called After the Event Insurance which would cover these costs for you. Your case handler will provide more detail about this.
You’ll sign a Conditional Fee Agreement or a Damages Based Agreement that says if you lose your case, you won’t pay our legal costs. If you win your case, the other side will pay for a proportion of our legal costs, but you may have to pay for some of these yourself from your damages. This is usually capped at a percentage agreed in advance.
No Win, No Fee Agreements are often used in personal injury, medical negligence and some other case types. If this is available your case handler will inform you.
