There are firms such as Powerlegal
that will discuss your case with you for free and then offer either a "No Win No Fee" or a "No Win Low Fee" deal. A lot would depend on the particulars of the case. It would be unusual, though, for a trademark case to be handled on a no win no fee basis. That's because normally damages or loss of profits are not recovered in trade mark cases since the matter is usually settled before court proceedings are issued and it is not worth going to court simply to obtain what might be a relatively small sum. That is not to say that compensation cannot be demanded or, indeed, obtained if you are sufficiently determined and persistent and the infringement is a blatant one.
Good luck and let us know how you get on.
