What is a no win – no fee agreement, and how does it work?
No Win – No Fee agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), is a cost agreement between a client and a solicitor. With a no win- no fee agreement, a client can instruct a solicitor without paying upfront fees. Subject to the value and settlement stage of the case, a solicitor receives cost as per the court rules from the defendant. The solicitor takes a percentage of compensation (also known as damages) as a success fee upon the successful conclusion of the case. Provided the client complies with the terms of the agreement, the client is not liable to make any payment if the claim is unsuccessful.
It is important to remember that not all solicitors work on a no win- no fee basis, and not all cases qualify for a no win – no fee agreement. For the solicitor to accept instruction on a no win- no fee basis, the claim should have more than a 50% prospect of success.
