There are a variety of funding options for judicial review cases. Legal Aid is available for people claiming means-tested benefits whose case has a reasonable chance of success. Check if you quality for legal aid. CFAs (i.e. No Win No Fee agreements) are available for some cases.
Protective Costs Orders (PCOs) protect you from having to pay the defendant’s costs if you are unsuccessful. These are available when the court judges it to be in the public interest for a decision to be challenged at judicial review. Without a PCO, or Legal Aid costs protection, if your claim is unsuccessful, you will be liable for defendant’s costs in full, as well as your own. This can be upwards of £30,000 and significantly more in complex cases. However, a PCO can help limit this exposure.
Before going ahead with a judicial review claim, we will also explore all possible alternative remedies that may be able to minimise costs, such as mediation, Ombudsman appeals, and complaints procedures.
We advise all our clients about potential costs and funding opportunities up front so if you’re worried about the cost, please contact us to discuss your options.
