Where people resolve matters out of court, whether through mediation or collaborative process, then they tend to pay their legal costs as they go.
If out-of-court settlement is not possible and a court application is necessary, where possible we also recommend that clients pay their costs on a regular basis during the course of the case.
However, there are times where this is not possible, if for example cash flow is tight or capital is tied up in a home. In those circumstances, we can discuss a range of funding options so that you are able to fund your case, for example borrowing from family or a personal loan.
We are registered with Novitas and Iceberg, two legal funding providers, both of whom offer legal funding loans to people who are unable to pay all of their legal costs during the course of the case. Both Novitas and Iceberg offer legal funding loans which enable you to pay your legal fees out of the eventual settlement.
We appreciate that it can be very difficult for people to meet their costs, particularly in court proceedings where one party has the financial resources to meet their costs but is not willing to assist the other party in meeting their costs. We will therefore assess with you the options available to you, prior to the institution of court proceedings, to ensure that you can benefit from representation in such a scenario.
