We provide Employment Law advice on a range of matters for employees.

We offer a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly known as a ‘No Win No Fee’ Agreement for certain types of employment law cases. This means if the case does not settle in your favour, you do not have to pay any of Kalra Legal Group’s legal fees.  An arrangement will be made where our fee will be a percentage of the sums recovered by your employer. Where you come to us with an existing offer in place, our fee will only be for a percentage of anything awarded or agreed over and above this. 

As specialists in employment law, the team have been successful in many No Win No Fee matters, obtaining large sums as compensation for our clients.

Where no win no fee is not suitable, we also offer fixed fee agreements and flexible fee arrangements. The fixed fee option will be an agreed fixed fee applicable irrespective of the outcome of the case. The fixed fee for our ET1 employment tribunal claim form writing service starts from £450 plus VAT (subject to terms & conditions). 

We also have flexible arranagements to suit our clients, such as payment in instalments. This could be a solution for you if you are negotiating a settlement from your employer.

Our aim is to find you a financial solution that fits your situation and your pocket; give us a call today to discuss your options.

No Win No Fee FAQs

Q: Am I eligible for the No Win No Fee arrangement?

A: We understand that no two cases are the same and therefore we believe it is inappropriate to set out strict rules for No Win No Fee eligibility.

However, below are some general internal guidelines we have in place to determine whether an individual is eligible for a No Win No Fee arrangement:

  • You should have at least 2 years of service.
  • Sole claims for Discrimination or Whistleblowing are unlikely to be eligible. These claims should be accompanied by Unfair Dismissal or Constructive Dismissal claims.
  • If your claim is for Unlawful Deduction from Wages, the loss of earnings should be approximately £15,000.00 and above.

Q: What is the process for deciding whether to take my case on a No Win No Fee basis?

A: To determine whether we can take your case on a No Win No Fee basis, we must firstly undertake a Case Review. The Case Review fee is £400.00 inclusive of VAT and will include:

  • A detailed summary of the facts of your case, your legal position
  • The strengths and weaknesses of your potential claims
  • Your potential award
  • The next steps
  • Whether your case can be taken on by Kalra Legal Group on a No Win No Fee basis.

In exceptional circumstances, where we believe your prospects are extremely strong, we may be able to take your matter on a No Win No Fee basis by conducting an internal review free of charge. In either event, the final decision will be made by our Managing Director.

If you believe you meet the eligibility guidelines above, contact us today for an initial 15 minute free telephone consultation.

Q: I am looking for help negotiating a higher settlement/compensation figure – can you help on a No Win No Fee basis?

A: These matters are also potentially eligible for No Win No Fee but again are subject to review as outlined above.

We only take a percentage of anything awarded or agreed above the current offer in place. For example, if your currently offer is £10,000 and we successfully negotiated you a package of £30,000, we would only take a percentage of £20,000, not the initial £10,000.

Q: How much compensation will I receive?

A: As part of the Case Review we will estimate your potential award should you be successful at the Employment Tribunal.

It will be extremely difficult if not impossible to estimate your compensation without this Case Review, as it is likely we will need to conduct calculations based on pay slips and other documentation you provide.

Q: Are there any upfront costs?

A: There are no costs for signing up to the No Win No Fee Agreement.

However, it is worth noting there may be some initial costs before we take you on this Agreement, such as if we conduct a Case Review or if you have a meeting with a solicitor. These fees are non-refundable and separate from the No Win No Fee arrangement.

Q: What happens if I win my employment claim under a no win no fee arrangement?

A: If your claim is successful, Kalra Legal Group will take 29% plus VAT from any compensation awarded or the settlement agreement you reach with your employer (not including the amount offered in any existing offer).

For example, if you are awarded £10,000.00, Kalra Legal Group will take £2,900.00 plus VAT from the award as legal fees.

As outlined in our No Win No Fee agreement, there are some costs payable whether you win or lose, such as expenses (e.g. printing) or Barrister fees. These fees are made clear within the No Win No Fee agreement.

Q: What happens if I lose my employment claim under a no win no fee arrangement?

A: If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay for our legal services.

As outlined above, there are certain costs payable whether you win or lose. These costs are made clear in the No Win No Fee agreement. 

Q: Will I have to pay the other sides costs if I lose?

A: It is very unlikely that you will have to pay the employer’s costs if your claim is unsuccessful.

The Employment Tribunal operates differently to the Civil Court in that the losing party does not pay the costs of the winning party. However, there are limited circumstances where the Claimant (yourself) may be liable to pay the costs of the Respondent (your employer/ex-employer). For example, if you brought a claim with no chance of success or your behaviour was very bad during proceedings. Parties are only ordered to pay the costs of the other party in less than 1% of cases.

Q: Do I have to pay to make an employment tribunal claim?

A: In 2017, fees for bringing employment tribunal claims were ruled unlawful and abolished. You do not have to pay anything to make an employment tribunal claim.

Q: What happens if I have legal expenses insurance?

A: If you have legal expenses insurance, sometimes provided with your home insurance policy, this is likely to cover a proportion of your legal fees if your case is successful. If this applies to you, we can help you prepare your insurance form to claim back your legal costs.

Q: Can I withdraw from a No Win No Fee arrangement?

A: You can withdraw, however you will be liable for our legal fees up to the point of withdrawal, payable at our hourly rates.
