What’s No Win No Fee?

No win no fee agreements, or conditional fee agreements to give them their correct name, have been around in the UK since 1995 and are designed to ensure that everyone can have access to justice regardless of their financial circumstances. Watch our short video below and find out more about how you can make a no win no fee claim with Mercury Legal.


Worried about making a no win, no fee claim?

No win no fee agreements take the risk and the worry out of making a compensation claim. Under a no win no fee agreement you:-

  • Do not have to pay any upfront fees
  • There are no hidden costs to worry about
  • You do not have to pay anything at all if your case is unsuccessful through no fault of your own.

If you do not win your case you do not have to pay a penny and your solicitor does not recover any of their costs so they have a vested interest in making sure that you recover the compensation you are entitled to – if you do not win, they do not get paid.

What happens after I receive my compensation?

Once you case has settled successfully your solicitor will recover the majority of their fees and expenses from the other side or their insurance company so you will never be asked to pay these costs. Unlike some legal firms our solicitors guarantee that you will keep a minimum of 75% of your compensation award. Prior to April 2013 solicitors were able to recover all of their fees from the losing party so that you were able to keep all of your compensation without any deductions. Due to a change in legislation solicitors are still able to offer a no win no fee service but you may be expected to make a contribution towards you legal costs if your claim is successful – this will be explained to you fully once your claim has been assessed. Crucially however it still remains the case that you will never have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own so you can pursue your compensation award without any financial risks.

Have any questions?

If you have any questions whatsoever about no win no fee arrangements and the new legislation introduced in April 2013 contact us free of charge and with no obligation for a full explanation.
