A range of funding options for a range of needs
‘You should never lose out on the legal advice you need just because you believe it’s out of reach.’
In a changing market, we aim to give you as many funding options as possible so there is one to meet your needs – whatever they may be. We undertake work under a range of funding alternatives, designed to help you access the advice you need at a price you can afford.
Helping you afford the appropriate expertise
Although legal advice comes at a price, it should always be cost-effective. That’s why we offer a range of funding solutions to help you access the advice you need. These include:
- Fixed or capped fees
Where appropriate, we’ll work for you on a fixed or capped fee basis.
We understand that you want to know what the final bill will be and not have to worry that costs are mounting. This makes expectations easier to manage, both for you and us.
- Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
LEI, also known as Before the Event (BTE) insurance, might mean you already have funding to cover part or all of your proposed claim. These policies can be standalone, or attached to your commercial or private buildings insurance or another insurance policy.
- Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA)
CFAs, also known as ‘no win, no fee’, are an increasingly popular method of funding litigation. In appropriate cases, and subject to risk assessment, we’ll be happy to take or share with you the risk for your litigation costs. We can also arrange insurance for you to guard against the risk of losing the claim and being ordered to pay your opponent’s costs.
