No Win No Fee Plan

We are usually able to offer virtually all of our will contest/challenge customers full litigation funding, so they do not need to finance their claim.

Under our CFA, we cannot charge you a fee unless the value of the remaining Settlement Monies paid/provided by the estate/defendant are sufficient to cover the fees we propose to charge.

Makea claim

When you commence to contest/challenge a will in the courts, in this site you are called the Claimant.

A lawyer’s fees typically have 3 components: Professional Fees for their professional time and input, Expenses including office services charges, and VAT.

When CWPL prepares its account for a No Win No Fee customer, we refer to the account as our Conditional Fee Account. It is “conditional” because we can only charge the customer if the value of the Settlement Monies or the court’s Award coming from the Estate/Defendant is greater than the account.

Most Traditional Law Firms Have a Complex Fee Agreement

Many claimants find the traditional Lawyer’s fee agreement is too focused on the fees and not enough on the service. It is usually written in complex language, so the claimant never really knows what their lawyer will do for his money.

CWPL is not a traditional law firm. Before we start any application in court for you, we disclose what fee range we expect our fees to fall within. Then, in our CFA we clearly disclose how our fees will be charged, and we give you examples.

We also set out the service standards you should expect from us, our responsibilities to you, and your responsibilities to us.

This information is all sent to you after we open a file for you. Our CFA sets out the terms and conditions* of our No Win No Fee Plan, all in Plain English.

With full litigation funding, so you do not need money to enforce your inheritance rights.

Most Traditional lawyers charge their customers “upfront” or “as they go”

Most Traditional lawyers will charge their client in advance, or on a “pay as you go” basis. Many people abandon their inheritance rights because they cannot pay up to £10,000 to commence a will contest/challenge, with no guarantee that they will not be out of pocket as a result.

CWPL is not a traditional law firm. With CWPL, you get full litigation funding, so you do not need money to enforce your inheritance rights.

Under our CFA, we cannot charge you a fee unless the value of the remaining Settlement Monies paid/provided by the estate/defendant are sufficient to cover the fees we propose to charge.

Most Traditional lawyers charge their customers even if they lose the case

Most Traditional Law Firms will charge full fees for a will contest/challenge, even if the claimant “lost” the case. In this situation, the claimant must pay his lawyer’s fees from his own pocket, even though he got nothing from the claim. This poor claimant would end up incurring a financial loss by having commenced his will contest/challenge, when all he was hoping for was a gain.

CWPL is not a traditional law firm. Under our No Win No Fee we only charge if there is a successful outcome and if the value of the Settlement Monies covers the fees.

We always do two assessments to ensure that your case is strong, before we proceed. In the unlikely event that your will contest/challenge was not successful, under our No Win No Fee Plan, we would not charge you a penny.
