What makes our No Win No Fee service different?

  • Our unfair dismissal No Win No Fee and constructive dismissal No Win No Fee services mean that, when you choose us to represent you, no fee will be paid until a monetary settlement is secured.
  • Under a typical No Win No Fee or contingent-fee agreement, the “contingency” is usually the recovery of money, or something of value, for the client. If that contingency does not occur, the client owes the attorney nothing for his effort.
  • The obvious benefit to the client is that he or she does not have to incur an out-of-pocket expense for the attorneys’ fees. This may be particularly valuable to a client who does not have the ability or desire to pay an attorney by the hour to advance the client’s case.

The “No Win No Fee” Arrangement

The contingent-fee, agreement benefits the client by effectively spreading the risk of litigation. An hourly-rate payment agreement requires the client to assume all of the risks because the advocates’ fees are a sunk cost. But under a contingent-fee arrangement, the advocate shares that risk and is only paid a fee if he wins the case or obtains a settlement.

The Texas Supreme Court recently described the benefits of contingent-fee agreements when it wrote:

“This risk-sharing feature creates an incentive for lawyers to work diligently and obtain the best results possible. A closely related benefit is the contingent fee’s tendency to reduce frivolous litigation by discouraging attorneys from presenting claims that have negative value or otherwise lack merit.”

Finally, the contingent-fee agreement has an implicit benefit for the client. The arrangement ensures that the advocate believes in the client’s case and will do the work necessary to obtain a positive result. Faith in the case and the desire to fight for the client may not always be present when advocates are guaranteed payment – without regard to the success or outcome of the case.

A client who retains an advocate through a contingent-fee arrangement, therefore, receives the advocate’s implicit belief that the case has merit.
