No win no fee is the term used to describe how solicitors take on a case where they pay the costs of the litigation. Solicitors who operate on this basis pay for the medical reports, stamp duty, experts fees and all other costs associated with the case.
In the vast majority of cases, clients would not be in a position to fund the cost of litigation and thus it is quite a common practice for specialised personal injury firms to operate on a “no win no fee” basis.
The Law Society has strict rules in place regarding advertising and these prohibit any solicitor from advertising their services as no win no fee.
It is important that you clarify with your solicitor before instructing them that they do operate on a no win no fee basis and ensure that this is also put in writing to you.
