JFH Law where appropriate will endeavour to provide assistance or advice without charge.
A breakdown of fees, litigation and payment with JFH law:
We aim to offer flexible packages of hourly rates and fixed fees depending upon the nature of your case.
Whether you need a specialist employment solicitor or a dental lawyer, we understand that you will want clarity. We will therefore agree a clear cost estimate with you at the outset and will undertake regular reviews, to ensure that you can manage the costs of your case as the matter proceeds.
In sum, we will provide:
- Guidance on funding options available.
- Any additional costs, such as court fees and expert’s reports will be charged in addition to our fees.
- For businesses we offer Business Support Packages which include discounted rates for representation by a specialist employment solicitor or dental lawyer.
You may have an insurance policy which offers legal assistance. If so, you should be aware that you are free to choose your own lawyer, rather than use the insurer’s “panel solicitors.”
- As specialist employment and dental lawyers, we have the ability to enter into damages-based agreements with clients.
- Work will be done on your case for no charge; however, if you are successful we will receive an agreed percentage of any damages that are awarded. If you are unsuccessful, you will not pay any legal fees to us, but may still be liable for expenses and your opponent’s legal fees.
- Wherever possible, we will seek to recover your costs from the other party (parties should be aware that costs are not usually awarded in the Employment Tribunal).
Our specialist employment and dental lawyers will request payment on account before undertaking any work.
If we expect your matter to take some time, or where the estimated fee is expected to be high, such as in litigation cases, then we will agree interim billing with you, to ensure that you can manage the costs of your case.
- We accept payment by bank transfer, PayPal*, cheque or cash (under £500).
- *There is a 3.4% fee for paying legal fees using a debit or credit card by PayPal.
- If your case does involve interim bills, then these will be sent to you monthly and any outstanding payment must be made within 28 days.
- If an invoice is not paid within 28 days, then interest will be charged in addition to any outstanding payment. If any payment remains outstanding following a final demand, then collection agents will be instructed and additional collection charges of 20% plus VAT will also be applied.
- In order to satisfy anti-money laundering regulations, we will also require proof of your identity in the form of photo ID and proof of address.
