Contingency Fee Arrangement (No win no fee*)

What is a Contingency Fee Arrangement?

A Contingency Fee Arrangement is a method of funding Employment Tribunal cases for Claimants. It is a written agreement whereby the advocate’s fees are payable depending on the outcome of your case. It is important that you are aware that in Employment cases, even if you are successful, the Tribunal is unlikely to order the opposing party to pay your costs.

 

What happens if you win your case or it settles?

If your case is suitable for funding by this method, and you win the claim, you will pay to us up to 35% of the monies that you have recovered. In addition you will also be required to pay any disbursements. Disbursements are payments which are made on your behalf to others involved in the case, such as expenses incurred in attending the Tribunal and expert’s fees.

 

What happens if you lose your case?

If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay your advocates charges, except for any disbursements.

If you are ordered to pay costs to your opponent, which is unlikely, those costs will be payable by you.

 

Can I be ordered to pay costs if I lose?

Costs do not ‘follow the event’ as they do in civil courts, so it is important that you properly follow the correct processes for making a claim. A judge will be more likely to order you to pay costs if they think you have lied or misled the tribunal, you have acted vexatiously, abusively, disruptively or unreasonably in bringing the claim or that you have not cooperated at every stage of the claim. However, if you are ordered to pay costs to your opponent those costs will be payable by you.
