The need to seek damages always arises from difficult circumstances. No win, no fee agreements are a popular and well known funding solution.
A no win, no fee agreement (known technically as a Conditional Fee Agreement) means that in the event that your claim is unsuccessful you will not have to pay us anything for our work. If your case is won you will often receive 100% of your compensation and we will recover our legal costs from the other side. At Curzon Green we believe in the principle that an injured party should receive 100% of his compensation and we do not like to eat into that compensation with our legal costs although the rules governing what legal costs can be recovered from the other side sometimes make it economically necessary to do so. Where it is economically necessary to recover costs from damages we typically apply a cap, so you know what you are likely to receive at the successful conclusion of your case.
We are often able to arrange a funding package for the litigation which covers the client against all the financial risks of litigation including the risk of paying the other side's legal costs in the event that the litigation is unsuccessful. The risk of paying the other side's costs only occurs once court proceedings have been issued. Our solicitors have been among the pioneers of creative solutions for the funding of litigation and this has permitted us to represent a number of individuals who would otherwise have not been able to bring a claim despite having a good case.
