Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Were these costs explained to you in an engagement letter? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. Is there any contractual basis for them to make these charges? Are the charges detailed as an hourly rate or win percentage in your agreement with the solicitors?
Thank you. It is not necessary that an agreement is signed per say, if you accept that the unsigned document is the basis of the contract. When you served notice the solicitors charged you for the cancelled cases. Do the charges relate to any time costs? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. I would write to them and make clear that the failed cases and the incurred costs are the result of their negligence. Say if they do not stop pursuing you for the money you will have no choice but to complain to the Legal Ombudsman and the SRA. Did they give you a retainer letter? Kind regards AJ
