What Does the Phrase No Win No Fee Mean?
No Win No Fee basically refers to the practice where Solicitors will not charge for their services if they do not win your case. The thinking behind this practice is that it gives claimants the power to pursue a claim regardless of their financial situation.
Very simply put, if you do not win your case, then you will not have to pay the associated legal costs. If and when your claim is successful, then standard legal charges will apply.
“No win no fee” is a well-known phrase throughout courtrooms and law offices in Ireland.
