What is a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?

A 'Conditional Fee Agreement', or 'CFA', is the technical term for 'No Win, No Fee'.  Under a conditional fee agreement you would typically not have to pay your solicitor any fees if your claim is unsuccessful.

How does a Conditional Fee Agreement work?

Solicitors are expensive, charging by the hour for their work. By agreeing a Conditional Fee Agreement your solicitor will not charge you for their work if your claim is unsuccessful so you won't have to pay them a penny.

If your claim is successful the defendants will pay your compensation and your solicitor's fees.

Why would a Solicitor do this?

Solicitors will only take on your case if they believe that you have a good chance of winning. Quittance's solicitors have excellent records in winning cases, so you can be assured of a strong team behind you.

When you win, your solicitor receives a "success fee", to recognise the risk they take working on a No Win No Fee basis.

What is a success fee?

The success fee is a percentage of your compensation paid directly to your solicitor. The standard percentage Solicitors charge is 25%.

Quittance's solicitors charge a 25% success fee. However if your claim is unsuccessful then our no win no fee policy means you pay no legal fees at all.
