Funding a legal case is always a worry, which is why we have developed a range of funding options for inheritance dispute cases.
One of the most popular ways of funding an inheritance dispute, a contentious probate case or a disputed will is through a particular type of No Win – No Fee arrangement, known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, or CFA.
We also offer a less common form of No Win - No Fee arrangement called a Damages Based Agreement, or DBA.
Not all inheritance cases are suitable for No Win – No Fee funding, but we are always happy to consider potential CFA and DBA claims under our FREE CASE ASSESSMENT service.
If we accept your inheritance case on a No Win – No Fee basis then we will not make a charge for the work we undertake on your behalf if you lose your claim. If you win the case then we are enitled to receive payment. In the case of a CFA you pay the legal costs, together with a success fee. We will seek recovery of your legal costs from the opponent or the estate, but the success fee itself is not recoverable.
You may already have legal expenses inurance that will pay your legal fees and will will be happy to review your insurance arrangements to ascertain whether you have cover. If you do then No Win - No Fee funding will not be required.
Legal expenses insurance may also cover you for any costs order made against you. If you don't already have this insurance and would like to be covered agaisnt an 'adverse costs order' then we can usually obtain insurance cover on a case by case basis.
If No Win - No Fee funding is not immediately available (for instance where further evidence needs to be obtained before the case can be definitively assessed) then we are always happy to reassess a case at a later date and switch to No Win - No Fee funding if the circumstances improve.
We are happy to discuss No Win - No Fee inheritance disputes, contentious probate cases and disputed wills on a free of charge basis. Call our free legal helpline with details of your case and will assess whether it is likley to be suitable for No Win - No Fee funding.
