The concept of ‘no win no fee’, also known as no foal no fee is common practice amongst solicitors in Ireland. This fee arrangement means that a solicitor will not charge for their service if a client’s case is unsuccessful i.e. if you do not win your case, you do not have to pay your legal fees.
On the other hand, if your case is successful, either by way of settlement outside of court or in front of a Judge in Court, then legal fees will apply.
The purpose of a no win no fee agreement* is to give you the legal power to pursue a claim regardless of your financial state or legal experience, should you need to make a claim or defend yourself against claims made against you.
