No win, no fee - sounds simple enough. If you don't win your case, you don't pay any money, right? Unsurprisingly, it isn't that straightforward. Along with the 'no win, no fee' promise often comes a list of catches and conditions and if you don't read the fine print properly, you could be left out of pocket.
Batteries not included. Terms and conditions apply. Limited time only. We're all familiar with the fine print attached to an asterisk on a product or service and the 'no win, no fee' promise is no exception. It 's true that you won't have to pay your law firm any legal fees unless you are successful in claiming compensation but there are a few exceptions to the rule.
