Legal Second Opinion Law Merits

Need to Rethink?

If your case has started and you’re worried about prospects, we can provide a second legal opinion. We analyse and work out the legal merits of running your case to trial. We calculate and advise on legal risk factors and the litigation rules in England & Wales. We factor in your risk-appetite, costs sensitivity and determination. We plan the best possible result. We deliver strategic legal advice at your first meeting with us.

Trust in your solicitor matters.

Are you unsatisfied with the advice being given to you by your solicitor? Are you unhappy with the level of service from your law firm? Do you feel like you have been overcharged for the work done by your solicitor? Do you want to transfer your case for an independent, expert and discounted fixed fee review?

We can take over your case immediately following our initial consultation with you. We have taken over many cases from clients across all practice areas who have been unhappy with their solicitor at the start of their litigation or part way through the litigation process. We know how to take over a case and we manage the entire process of transferring law firms for you.

Our Case Transfer Service

We do things differently from other law firms in England & Wales. We offer you partner and counsel-led advice in our first meeting, for a heavily discounted fixed fee, during which we will advise you on:

  • How to transfer your litigation case seamlessly from your current solicitor to us.
  • How to get your current solicitor to release your litigation papers to us.
  •  Giving you a second legal opinion directly from one one of our specialist barristers or solicitors on your underlying litigation case.
  • Whether you can challenge the costs charged by your solicitor. Unlike many law firms we have an in-house Legal Costs Disputes team to advise you on whether the time claimed for is reasonable and whether you have been overcharged.
  • How to maximise chances of any settlement from your former solicitor and/or their professional indemnity insurer.
  • Whether you have professional negligence claim against your solicitor for the bad advice, poor service or any errors made (on which we may enter into a no win no fee following our assessment of the merits of the case at the initial meeting).
  • How to win. Strategic advice on how to maximise your chances of being the successful party in litigation.

LIMITATION ACT 1980 – WARNING

The Limitation Act 1980 sets out strict statutory deadlines within which you must bring litigation claims. Your legal rights will become irreversibly time-barred if you fail to take legal action (or defend a claim on time). Therefore, you should seek specific legal advice about your legal dispute at the very first opportunity so that you understand the time you have left. Failure to take advice or delay in taking action can be fatal to your prospects of success.
