Our Fees

At ASL we aim to always be transparent and open about our fees. To best assess your case and provide a realistic price quotation, we normally offer a free consultation with one of our solicitors or fee earners over the phone.

In most of these initial consultations, we will provide an estimate of the costs involved in your case and you can decide whether you wish to continue with us. However, we may need to request further information before advising you of potential costs. We understand that everyone has different requirements, which is why we provide a variety of flexible funding options.

Please see the list below to learn more:

 Fixed Fee:

We predominantly operate on a fixed fee basis. We offer a fast and professional service from start to finish and this includes advising you of all the costs right at the start of your matter.

The fixed fee only changes if there are substantial changes in your circumstances which require significant extra work, and we will always notify you beforehand. Otherwise, the fixed fee is all that you must pay.

Third Party Funding Arrangements – This is where your case would be funded by another party in exchange for an agreed share of sums recovered. Please note this is in limited circumstances only.

 DBA – Damages Based Agreement

Often referred to as ‘No-Win-No-Fee’ agreements, Damages Based Agreements (DBA) or Contingency Agreements or arrangements between clients and solicitors whereby the solicitor’s legal fees are only payable if the instruction is successful (as defined in the DBA).

These agreements can apply to a wide variety of situations, including contentious litigated legal proceedings and non-contentious instructions to recover assets or apprehend interests existing in corporate disputes, property interests or any other commercial arrangement or dispute.

In other words, a Damages Based Agreement is an arrangement in which the solicitor will share in the proceeds of a claim.  Accordingly, a DBA only applies in the following circumstances:

  • Money claims – it is not appropriate for any claims when an alternate remedy to damages is sought; and
  • Claimant’s legal costs – it is not appropriate for the legal costs incurred by a Defendant in proceedings, as there is nothing recoverable that can be shared with the solicitor (other than, as conventionally occurs, an award for the solicitor’s standard legal costs).

Legal costs incurred in non-contentious proceedings – for example negotiations to exit a company or any other circumstance where the client has a position which the solicitor can assist in resolving to the client’s financial benefit.
