Fees & Costs
There are no upfront fees. We only charge you if you are successful and receive a financial settlement or an award and then we will take 35% of the total amount. Our intention is not to make profit, we just need to cover our costs. You won’t have to pay anything until you secure your settlement through mediation with your employers or your award at court or tribunal. Any money that we do make is ploughed back into the organisation to help other people in a similar situation.
