I am so stressed, so this is my last resource.

Hi there,


Sorry for the late reply, been away.

Ok, basically, I am a designer and manufacturer of beauty equipment since 1998. My designs and IP have been used without my permission by another company and this is affecting my company very dangerously. I have taken a solicitor to bring these people to court but so far it is financially crippling me, as my company cannot afford to pay for the legal representation ( so far I have had to pay over £ 6000 for solicitors letter etc...). I am digging into my personal savings and cannot continue.

I have been told by my solicitor that I will win this case but it is going to cost me a hell of a lot of money.

Is there a way of getting some financial legal aid to make sure these people don't get away with this fraudulent situation.

Have proceedings been issued at all?

If its such a good case would the Solicitor take it on a no win no fee basis?
