In certain circumstances, for example, cases before a Tribunal or where Court proceedings are not possible or desired, we can take your case on the basis that we receive a proportion of your damages if you win, but nothing if you lose.
We can advise if your case is appropriate for such an agreement. A good example of such a case would be a matter brought before the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority for victims of criminal assault etc, or an Employment Tribunal matter.
You do not usually need insurance as your opponent is rarely entitled to be paid costs if you lose these types of cases. It only applies to cases where you are seeking damages.
