What is no win no fee?

The term 'no win no fee' typically refers to 'Conditional Fee Agreements' (CFAs). If a claim on a CFA is unsuccessful the solicitor receives no payment for their work under the CFA, hence the term no win no fee.

If the claim is successful the solicitor claims a higher than normal level of fees to reflect their risk in taking the case on a CFA.

When could no win no fee apply?

  • Personal injury and medical accident claims - No win no fee is most commonly used for personal injury and medical accident compensation claims. Expert solicitors like Russell-Cooke are happy to offer no win no fee arrangements in appropriate cases because they are able to assess the chances of success with the highest possible degree of accuracy. There is absolutely no need to go to a claims manager or a non-specialist solicitor to bring a claim on a no win no fee basis.
  • Employment claims - We do not usually offer no win no fee arrangements for employment cases but in certain circumstances we may be able to assist you. Visit our employment litigation fact sheet or call +44 (0)20 3826 7667 to find out more.
  • Other disputes - For other types of disputes no win no fee is not available for claims with a value of less than £50,000. For claims over £50,000 we will undertake an assessment to consider whether we are prepared to offer a no win no fee arrangement. There will be a charge for this initial assessment.
