Is it No-Win No-Fee?

We operate on a No-Win No-Fee basis, meaning if we are unsuccessful in your claim, you will not be liable for any fees.

What fee do Barings charge?

If we are successful in your claim, Barings Law charge a success fee of 25%+ VAT. These fees will be displayed in your CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement). If we are unsuccessful, you will not be liable for any fees.

What information do I need when submitting a claim?

When submitting a claim with us, all we require is a copy of the notification letter or email from the organisation that has been breached informing you that you have been impacted by the breach. 

If you have been impacted financially, you can also submit any bank or credit statements that show discrepancies. 

How long does the process take?

It is not possible to give an exact timeframe. A number of contributing factors that arise with any legal case may determine the speed of progress, one of which is the cooperation of the defendant.

Our legal experts will be able to give you a clearer indication once proceedings have started.

Can I claim if I have not suffered a financial loss?

You can claim even without experiencing a financial loss as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) grants you the right to seek compensation for both material and non-material damage, including distress from issues such as spam calls.

How are awards or damages determined?

The total damages will be determined by various factors, such as the severity of the breach, the organisations data protection measures, and any personal impact.
