What is a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?

Share this article

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.

How can Quittance help?

Your solicitor will fight for the best possible compensation settlement for you, and the highly-experienced panel of solicitors have an excellent track record of winning injury claims.
