No win – No Fee
If we assess you’ve been wronged and have a right to compensation from an insurer, such as in a motor vehicle claim or at common law (e.g. a shopping centre fall), we’ll back you with a no win, no fee retainer. This means we don’t get paid until you do. The way we determine the amount is by hourly rates.
We dislike hourly rates as much as you do.
Wherever we can, we offer you fixed fees.
That means we do not charge you when we pick up the phone or send an email.
We are big on long term relationships with our clients and we measure the value of our services largely by whether you come back.
