Legal costs in family provision matters

Segelov Taylor acts on a ‘no win no fee’ basis for individuals in approved family provision claims.

This means if you are not successful, you will not be charged for our costs incurred in litigating the claim. You will not be charged any monies up front. We will pay all the disbursements (monies paid out by us for such things as court fees and mediator’s fees). We will not be paid for our work until the successful completion of your matter. Our fees are determined by an hourly rate, plus disbursements. We do not charge a percentage of the amount recovered.

  • We recognize that costs can be a substantial burden.
  • We are committed to cost effective access to justice.
  • Our fees are structured to help everyone with a strong claim (including lower income earners) enforce their rights.


If you are not successful in your claim, you may be ordered to pay the executor’s costs. It is therefore important you seek legal advice as to the merits of any claim before commencing proceedings, and to ensure that you have effective and experience lawyers acting for you.

When we act for an executor, all costs are normally paid from estate funds.

In certain circumstances Segelov Taylor will act on a ‘no win no fee’ basis in challenging a will.

Please contact our office and we will provide you with a free assessment of your case. We will in all circumstances provide a full costs disclosure and will discuss the costs arrangements prior to commencing work.
