The way in which the work that we do for you may be funded depends upon the type of case and our agreement with you. The following options are available:
Payment by hourly rate;
Payment by agreed fee;
Payment by legal expenses insurance;
Payment by contingency fee agreement or conditional fee agreement (types of no win, no fee agreement).
As a specialist in employment law, our hourly rate may be higher than some other providers. However, we are likely to complete the work required in less time than a non-specialist.
You may be aware of some providers who offer legal advice for free, or for a small or modest cost. For example, some organisations offer to do pro bono work; this is work done voluntarily and without charge. We do not currently take on pro bono work.
If you are a member of a union, you may be entitled to free legal advice. If you are in receipt of certain benefits you may be eligible for legal aid. We will advise you if we think that any of these funding methods are applicable in your case.
