Manchester’s Clear Law Solicitors say it like it is - with a plain English rewrite of the Standard CFA document
Straight-talking Manchester law firm Clear Law Solicitors has scrapped legal jargon in favour of a plain English approach for its no win no fee compensation claims process.
“Anyone who has sought damages after being injured through negligence will know that legal documents can be complex and wordy – and that doesn’t really help anyone,” said Andrew Kwan, head of litigation at Clear Law Solicitors in Old Trafford.
Clear Law Solicitors has broken the mould and adapted the Law Society’s standard Conditional Fee Agreement (or “no-win no-fee”) document, and is working on translating other legal documents too.
Andrew said: “We found that clients couldn’t understand what the documents they were signing were for, or they misunderstood them, and our staff was spending a lot of time taking them through it. We were happy to do that, but we’ve found that clients are much more comfortable with the new document and process when they can understand the document in black and white themselves.
“Just making our client documents a little more modern, more human, and less stiff and bureaucratic has made all the difference”.
Clear Law is accredited by national not-for-profit campaign group, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, which works for legal redress and fairness in the system for injured people.
“Taking legal action, no matter what the reason, can be daunting and the client can already feel quite vulnerable. We want to do anything we can to make the experience easier for them,” added Andrew.
