read more › Our specialist business recovery solicitors are some of the most experienced in the industry; providing legal advice for businesses and individuals facing insolvency and bankruptcy. We are a London based law firm, with multi-lingual Solicitors, that has the ability to undertake matters in the UK and abroad. Our expert commercial litigation team offers specialist advice on insolvency and dispute resolution, covering a wide range of directorial and shareholder issues.

read more › We appreciate that you need to know what costs are likely to be incurred, and at what stage, so that you can budget accordingly. As part of our Law Society Lexcel Accreditation and client care procedure, we'll give you an estimate of the cost at the outset of your case. We'll update the estimate at regular intervals as the case progresses. Litigation funders and insurers also need to know the quantum of the costs required, and they will use our estimate to assist them. The rules of court also require detailed cost estimates.

read more › However, the funding is provided in return for a share of the litigation recoveries (being either a settlement with your opponent or through an award), or an agreed multiple of the costs advanced. Such funding arrangements used to be considered illegal in the United Kingdom but are now accepted by the Courts and there has been an emergence in the market with several highly respected funders operating in the marketplace. The funder will probably require an assessment of the merits of your case and also a detailed costs estimate.

read more › If you are not successful, the usual order made is that the loser pays the winner's costs. ATE insurance can help reduce this financial risk. Although the ATE insurers will make their own assessment, they will usually ask us to provide a summary of your case, and possibly also Counsel will have to give an opinion on merits. Under current law, the insurance premium can be recovered from your opponent, but only where the insolvency exception applies. Often the levels of ATE premiums are staged so they rise as the case progresses.

read more › Litigation is very much a team effort between solicitor, client, Counsel, and experts if relevant. In simple terms, a CFA is an agreement between lawyer and client to share the risk by combining the outcome of the case with the fees payable to the lawyer. For example, we might agree to discount our standard fees by a certain percentage (say 35%). If the outcome of the case is unsuccessful, you would only pay 65% of our fees. If the outcome is successful, you would pay a pre-agreed success fee on top of our standard hourly base rate - this is our reward against the risk of not getting paid.

read more › A damages-based agreement (DBA) is a form of "no-win, no fee" agreement between a lawyer and client, under which the lawyer is paid an agreed proportion of the sums the client recovers in litigation. This kind of arrangement is perhaps more often described as a "contingency fee", but in England and Wales that term would also cover a "conditional fee agreement". In commercial cases, the payment a lawyer may agree to receive under a DBA will be subject to a cap of 50% of the sums recovered by the client.

read more › At Summit Law LLP, we understand that confidence and trust with clients is essential to meeting clients' needs. For this reason, Summit Law LLP has applied for and been granted Lexcel Accreditation status. Lexcel Accreditation is the hallmark of a truly professional, transparent and responsible legal practice. Lexcel Accreditation is the Law Society's practice management standard; obtaining it means that a practice has satisfied certain standards during an independent assessment. The Lexcel standard is awarded to solicitors who meet only the very highest management and customer care standards and accreditation is no light matter.
