No Win No Fee = Legal Services For New Zealand Employees

Work Law is a specialist NZ Employment Law firm. We act only for employees. If you need an employment law expert and can’t afford to pay the legal fees on the usual hourly rate basis that employment lawyers charge, no win no fee is a good option.  We currently have employment advocates in Auckland, Northland,Wellington and Taranaki, and we can usually represent you remotely if you live outside these areas.

No Win No Fee = Access to Justice

No Win No Fee is a valuable service option because it provides access to justice for people who would otherwise be unable to afford an employment lawyer.

No Win No Fee

In New Zealand, employment lawyers don’t usually offer No Win No Fee” services.  Under the Lawyers and Conveyancers Act 2006 Conditional fee agreements are not permitted to make provisions for a contingency fee based on a fixed percentage.  Employment advocates offer “No WinNo Fee” services, providing access to justice for NZ Employees who cannot afford hourly rate representation by an Employment Lawyer.   

Do Employment Lawyers offer No Win No Fee?

If an employment lawyer, holding a current Practicing Certificate offers a No Win No Fee arrangement, it will likely be because they have evaluated the potential success of your case and quoted for the service at their hourly rate. The fees as quoted would be payable at settlement.  If the Lawyer doesn’t manage to settle your case for more than the quoted fees, you could potentially come away with nothing.

An Employment Advocate may have a Law Degree, but not be allowed to call themselves an Employment Lawyer.

At Work Law Ltd, we attempt to recover your legal fees from your Employer.  When we are able to recover our fees from your employer we don’t need to take a percentage of your settlement, however, when we do take a percentage, on cases up to and including mediation, it is never more than one-third of your settlement.
