Weighing the Costs
Before we begin work on your behalf and as the case progresses, we will give clear and frank advice about the merits of your claim and the chances of success. We will help you weigh this against the likely level of legal charges and expenses and any other concerns that you may have regarding your case. We strive on finding the best way to resolve the matter as efficiently and inexpensively as possible.
Many disputes and claims can be resolved effectively out of Court and we will consider with you the options available including mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, in addition Legal Expenses Insurance or conditional fee agreement, ‘no win, no fee’, may sometimes be available.
