We are still regulated and our assets are still locked into community interests.

The two bodies emerged 4th August 2022.
"Your country doesn't care about you at all, at all; you don't have any rights, we made them up, like the boogie man, Pinocchio, stuff like that. They are imaginary, cute and fictional." -
http://tiny.cc/2fztsz - something to dwell upon.
Whilst we agree with the sentiment, we strive to prove him wrong every day. ( about the rights that is, the country not caring is a given.)

An impeccable reputation
Ability to deliver high quality advice

HOW ARE YOU FUNDED?
We provide free initial advice and then try and find volunteer lawyers and experts to help the most vulnerable in our society. Over ninety per cent of our funding comes from voluntary subscriptions, memberships and donations. Without this vital income, we could not operate.
We work on many different types of after the event funding, from conditional fee agreements, damages based agreements and a whole lot more.
In litigation cases, if we win, we recover the bulk of our costs from the other side. We also recover our costs from public funds and from insurance policies but our main objective is to provide free advice and support and recovering costs is low down on our priorities.
