Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreements
We undertake risk assessments on all such matters and aim to complete the same within 24 hours of receipt of instructions on straightforward matters, or 72 hours of receipt of substantial papers, if applicable. The length of time taken on the risk assessment will vary according to the instructions and papers but we would expect to spend in the region of 30 minutes on straightforward matters. A more accurate timeframe can be given on a case by case basis if required. We do not charge for the initial risk assessment.
If a matter is accepted it would, as a rule of thumb, be subject to a 25% Success Fee and After the Event Insurance (ATE) Premium deduction. The level of Success Fee and ATE Premium will vary depending on the nature and complexity of the case and the exact Success Fee as a percentage of damages and ATE Premium will be confirmed to you before you sign any retainer with us.
Under the terms of a Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreement, you would ordinarily only have to pay the Success Fee and ATE Premium yourself. If however, you breach the agreement you would then become responsible for our full costs.
