No Win, No Fee, No Interest

You’ve probably seen a lot of lawyers use the term ‘No Win, No Fee’.

What Does No Win, No Fee Mean?

A “No Win, No Fee” client agreement means that if you lose, you won’t need to pay us a cent unless and until we win or settle your case successfully. And, unlike many law firms, we will fund 100% of your case and do not charge you any interest.

Long story short, if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid. And unlike many firms, we pay your outlays and will never charge you interest.

How Does A No Win, No Fee Arrangement Work?

Let’s break it down in simple terms.

Conditional Costs Agreement

Once we’ve established that you should pursue your claim, you can tell us if you want us to proceed acting as your legal representatives. To formally appoint us as your legal representative in the claim, you will enter into a ‘Conditional Costs Agreement’ with us. This is a legal contract that sets out the likely costs of running your claim based on our fees, as well as the rights and responsibilities of you as the client and us as your legal representatives.

Before proceeding, we’ll explain the agreement clearly and thoroughly, with as little ‘legal speak’ as possible. We promise you’ll understand it completely.

No Win, No Fee, No Interest

Importantly, this agreement will set out the ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement in black and white. It will specify that you will not pay us anything if your claim is not successful. In certain circumstances, you may be required to pay the other party’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful. Unlike other law firms, if you do win, we won’t charge you interest on fees or charges owed to us.

Disbursements and Outlays

Our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement also covers you for disbursements, or outlays. These are expenses that we may need to pay to progress your claim, including medical reports, expert witness fees and barristers’ fees.

Why We Don't Use Litigation Lenders

At Littles Lawyers, we back you all the way. This includes covering the costs of your claim until it is settled. And we will never charge you interest on outlays.

Some other firms hedge their bets. They want to run your claim, but they don’t want to use their own money to fund it. You might have heard about ‘litigation lenders’ or ‘litigation funders’. These are for-profit businesses that lend law firms money to pay for their clients’ outlays and disbursements.

This means less money in your pocket when your matter settles. That is because litigation lenders charge exorbitant interest rates and fees that are passed directly to you. At Littles, our expert team prioritises getting you the best results possible for our clients. We work for you, not litigation lenders.

This is why we’ll never use litigation lenders unless you instruct us specifically to do so.

It’s just another reason to choose Littles Lawyers.
