DBA’s are a litigation agreement where solicitors and clients share the risk – and reward – of litigation.
Instead of paying fees up front in the traditional way (such as an hourly rate, or a fixed fee), your solicitor will only be paid as a percentage of any damages actually recovered. If the claim fails, we receive nothing.
There are no hourly rates, budgets, estimates or fixed fees to negotiate or worry about as the claim proceeds, or at the end. We simply agree with you that we will be paid an agreed percentage of any sums recovered from your opponent, whether that is through trial or earlier settlement.
