If, after investigation of your claim, we think you have reasonable prospects of success, we will usually agree to act on a speculative basis. That means we will not charge for our professional fees unless and until your claim is successfully finalised.
We do require payment of any costs or outlays (eg. medico-legal reports from a specialist) incurred on your behalf, even if your claim is not successful. We will not incur significant outlays without first discussing it with you. An estimate of outlays will be provided in our Costs Agreement.
Our costs will be reasonable – we will discuss them with you in detail before you instruct us to act on your behalf and will enter into a Costs Agreement with you. We strongly recommend you seek independent legal advice about the Costs Agreement before you sign it.
