How will much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your legal dispute, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home insurance policy which includes Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) cover, your legal costs may be covered by your policy (subject to the terms and conditions of the policy). If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
If you do not have LEI cover, we can still deal with your dispute on a fixed fee basis, offering you clarity on your legal costs.
Our employment law specialists will be happy to explain all of these options to you.
