No win no fee service

Many clients are interested in the offer of no win, no fee legal services. At Alexander & Co in Derby we offer a no win, no fee funding service for what are called "contentious matters". These include personal injury cases and professional negligence.

No win, no fee is available to individuals only, not businesses. In addition, the claim must fall within the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales for us to be able to accept the case. There is no means testing, meaning that our no win, no fee service is available to everyone subject to the firm's approval.

Before making a decision on whether to take your case, we will do a risk assessment.

Please note, that no win, no fee is not always the most suitable type of funding and we will take the time with you to discuss and agree which method of funding would be best for you.

For example, if you as our client already have a funding option such as a legal expenses insurance policy in place it may be more prudent for you to claim under this insurance policy than to enter into a no win no fee arrangement.


In addition, as legal aid is not available for non-matrimonial civil litigation cases, no win no fee funding may be attractive for people who are unable to fund the litigation themselves.
