We must not charge you a success fee in excess of the actual costs, in other words, we must never charge a success fee in excess of 100%. If your case involves a claim, we cannot charge you more than 25% of your compensation as a success fee. If your case is very strong and the amount of compensation is quite high, we will often agree to limit our success costs to a quarter of your compensation, even if we do not have to do so, for example in a housing case where no injury has been suffered. The company behind the HDH site is Flybell Limited. There are two directors of Flybell Limited, one of whom is Arthur J A Barnes.
