WHAT IS AN UPLIFT?
An uplift is an additional fee charged by the law practice. This uplift can amount to an additional 25% of the professional fees charged by a law firm.
For example, in cases where professional fees amount to $10,000.00, an uplift would be an additional $2,500.00 being imposed on your account, resulting in the final amount payable to your lawyers to be $12,500.00.
CAN LAW FIRMS CHARGE THIS AMOUNT?
Given that almost all personal injury lawyers act on a “No Win No Fee” basis, the law permits a law firm to charge this uplift.
This fee is to account for the law practice’s risk in undertaking a conditional client agreement, as well as all outlays expanded in credit on behalf of the client during the course of the matter.
