          Just took a look at the CFA, standard model template based on the Law Society's. Whilst it does not refer to any transfer of law firm it does mention that you must pay them their fees, disbursements etc. albeit if you win.

          I suppose the rest of the terms could be held under the Client Care Letter - do you remember this being the only documents you first received? Last time I was there, they sent out a pack which contained request for personal info for money laundering checks, a client care letter, funding agreement and a few other things.

          Even in the Client Care Letter, there is unlikely to be anything in there to say you can't move solicitors but if you do move you will probably have to pay their fees unless you can agree with the new firm that their fees will be paid if successful by way of undertaking. Solicitors are always reluctant to give an undertaking unless they have a high chance of winning.

          Either way, if you want to leave then I suppose you could but I believe there was a term somewhere which said if you decide not to pursue it further without good reason then they can recover their fees from you that they have worked on to date.

            Getting injured in an accident can hamper your job as well as your ability to be financially independent. Injured in an accident? Then personal injury loans will help you in getting back up and paying your bills. Regardless of if it is school supplies or rent, car payment and so on, a personal injury loan will aid you in clearing them off. You are also allowed to spend the funds as you desire and there is no clause involved.
            Bridgepoint financial loans are professionals to handle these matters.
            It differs in various states so it is crucial you carry out research and have a clear understanding from your attorney before you apply for personal injury loans.
