VAT will be applied at the prevailing rate in addition to fees set out in the table.
If you win your case it is a contractual requirement that you instruct us to complete the work under stage 7. If you fail to do so we retain the right to deliver a final review of the case and the outcome, to transfer any relevant documents and to complete a final report and bill at the same fixed fee as is set out in stage 7.
A ‘Win’ is where: your claim for damages is finally decided in your favour, whether by a court decision, or an agreement to pay you damages, or in any way that you derive benefit from pursuing the claim.
Our fixed fees and any disbursements plus agreed additional fees for additional work are to be paid on account and in advance of the work to be done at the next stage; and we reserve the right to stop work if the agreed payment on account of future work to be done is not paid.
The fees you are required to pay us under this agreement are in addition to any legal fees we recover from the Defendant for our basic costs.
When legal fees are due, we must be paid promptly in order for us to continue your claim on your behalf. If we are not paid promptly and in advance of the next stage, we reserve the right to stop acting on your behalf.
If we begin running your claim, but you cancel or otherwise discontinue your claim, we reserve the right to deliver a bill to you for our costs including advice given and work we have carried out on your case up to that point.
