7.       If John Kennedy Limited is unable to introduce you to a legal adviser, then the relationship between you and John Kennedy Limited shall terminate

 

For avoidance of doubt and by way of an explanation and an example of our fees, if you are awarded £100,000 damages in Court or by negotiation, once any legal fees and After The Event Insurance Premium have been deducted, you will have to pay us 8% plus VAT of the amount left ie £100,000 damages less £20,000 legal fees and insurance premium (this is not how much your legal fees and insurance premium will necessarily be, it is an example only) which leaves £80,000.  8% of £80,000 amounts to £6,400 plus £1,280.  In this scenario our fees would be £7,680 which would be deducted from the £80,000 leaving you with £72,320.  Remember this is only an example.
