(Please note we have Polish speakers and we specifically represent the Polish Community in the UK.)
We have specific expertise in co-habitation cases where the relationship has broken down and there is a dispute over the property. We may be able to act on a greatly reduced hourly rate in return for a contingency fee (typically is 25% but this can vary). In a typical case we will represent you on a reduced hourly rate initially in order to advise you on the merits of the case and also the likely value. If there are not good prospects of success of a substantial settlement we may simply advise you at that point that you should “walk away” rather than spend more time and money on pursuing a risky claim.
As with general litigation and property litigation we can offer a two-stage process;
- We will require that clients initially put some money into their cases up front, in order to carry out a proper assessment of its merits.
- If we are satisfied that your claim has genuine merit we may thereafter be able to assist you on the basis of a no-win no fee agreement. This may be in conjunction with a contingency fee.At the end of that stage and where we believe you do have a strong case we will the undertake the work on a No Win No Fee basis and will also look to provide you with insurance against paying the other side’s costs if the matter were to go all the way to trial.
Alex Woods has business contacts in Warsaw, Poland, where he regularly visits and this service may assist overseas clients in Europe and elsewhere who may have returned home after the break-up of a relationship and need help with understanding their legal position and their legal rights.
