The following Practice Compliance precedent provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • Letter explaining DBA—employment tribunal

Standard DBA (employment tribunal)

We have discussed various options for funding your costs, such as:

  1. legal expense insurance, eg under your house or car insurance

  2. via a trade union or other membership organisation

  3. by a third party funding agreement

  4. advice under the Community Legal Service scheme (Legal Aid)

  5. some sort of pro-bono representation (free representation provided by legal volunteers)

  6. [add any other method you may have discussed]

It appears that none of these options is available or suitable and we have therefore agreed to act on a damages-based agreement or ‘DBA’. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like further advice or information about the alternative funding options listed above before entering into the DBA.

A DBA is a type of no-win-no-fee agreement. The agreement itself is enclosed with this letter and it relates to [state what the DBA covers, eg your claim for unfair dismissal against KMFFS limited]. We are satisfied that the DBA is suitable for your needs and takes account of your best interests.
