Frequently Asked Questions

For personal injury cases, we will bill you based on our hourly rates. Our professional fees cover the time required for your lawyer and legal team to work on your case, with some cases taking longer to run than others.

You may be concerned that you could be left with little compensation once legal fees are paid. You’ll be relieved to know that Queensland law protects your interests by placing a maximum limit on the professional fees and the uplift fee that can be charged by “No Win No Fee” lawyers.

You might be wondering what does this mean for your compensation money. The formula looks like this:

(Total Compensation Amount – Disbursements* – Statutory Refund) x 0.5 = Your net recovery = Our legal fee

*Disbursements refer to payments made to third parties, such as admin fees for medical records or fees paid for an independent medical examination report.

In other words, the 50/50 rule ensures our legal fee cannot be more than what you get in your pocket.


Lawyers do have to deal with more risks and financial pressure with a “No Win No Fee” cost agreement. That is why the law allows for an uplift fee to compensate for the risks and financial pressure.

An uplift fee is an increase in legal fees if we win. The maximum uplift fee you can be charged cannot be more than 25% of the legal fee.

Most other firms will want to keep their rights to an uplift fee. However, unlike those firms, we promise to never charge an uplift fee to any clients.

For you, as the client, there is no risk.

All fees from your case will only be paid after we get your settlement money. You have no financial pressure and will be receiving guidance from our compensation lawyer immediately. You don’t need to worry about anything. You only need to cooperate with our compensation lawyer and we will sort out the rest.

If your case has little chance of winning, we will let you know, because:

  1. We have a legal responsibility to act in your best interests.
  2. If your claim is unsuccessful, we are responsible for all the costs.

We are very careful with choosing what cases to retain. As a result, we have never been in the position of losing or having any client pay the other party’s costs.

Here at Ascent Lawyers, we strive to protect every client’s rights and to maximise your compensation amount. We will evaluate your case from every aspect before taking it on. If there are any issues or merits to your case, we will explain them all in detail.

We are committed to safeguarding all of your rights and interests. Please rest assured that we will never let a “No Win No Fee” cost agreement influence our ethical duties to act in your best interest.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Ascent Lawyers for my personal injury case back in 2019. All the lawyers demonstrated high level of professionalism throughout all the stages of engagement. Ascent Lawyers was not only able to provide tailored legal advice, but they had been extremely informative and transparent during the entire process. This is particularly extraordinary when you consider the no-win-no-fee business model for PI matters. My case, in the end, was concluded with excellent results. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the whole team for their hard-work and professionalism, as well as Kira and Mengpei's close involvement with my case. I think their 5-star google review record does not lie. I would also recommend this firm to anyone.
