We are proud, as a firm of specialist data breach solicitors, to be able to represent our clients for legal cases on a No Win, No Fee basis.
As a leading law firm operating in this complex and niche area of law in England and Wales, we have launched thousands of No Win, No Fee cases. This includes singular claims and for the over 45 group and multi-party actions we have launched as well.
Here is a little insight into how the No Win, No Fee works, why we offer it, and what you can do to speak to the team today for free, no-obligation advice.
Our Data Breach Solicitors work on a No Win, No Fee basis
Our Data Breach Solicitors work on a No Win, No Fee basis for eligible clients. We think that providing this kind of representation is vitally important, and we are proud to be able to offer it.
How it works, in general, is really simple. There are terms and conditions for the agreement (of course), but we are not in the habit of cheating people. Not only is this not what we are all about, but we are also an actual law firm that is regulated in England and Wales. What this means is that we could not get away with cheating people and being ‘sneaky’ even if we wanted to (which we don’t!)
In short, the No Win, No Fee arrangements that we offer mean that:
- We can write off our legal fees if the case does not succeed, as long as you complied with the terms and conditions;
- For example, if the Defendant was able to present a legitimate defence to a case and we felt that we could not overcome this defence in law, we could stop the case and write off any legal fees we have incurred;
- We do not charge upfront fees for eligible No Win, No Fee cases either, so it is not a case of refunds or back payments.
Why we work this way
The reason why our Data Breach Solicitors work on a No Win, No Fee basis is because we firmly believe in access to justice. We do not feel it would be fair for you to have to pay for a losing case, and we know that many people could not afford to meet any legal fees for a losing claim either.
Really, it makes no sense to work in any other way. Would people really bother making a claim if there was a real risk of having to pay fees for a losing case? We do not think that many would, and many may not be able to afford to take the risk either.
We, on the other hand, can afford to take the risk. The reasons for this are that we:
- Carefully risk assess cases so we know there should be a good chance of winning the claim from the outset. This does not mean that we only take forward “easy cases” at all;
- When we win a case, we charge a Success Fee which reflects the risk of taking the case on. The Success Fee is not recoverable from the opponent in most cases, due to legal reforms that happened a few years ago. This Success Fee allows our Data Breach Solicitors to be able to fund cases on a No Win, No Fee basis.
