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.
