Customer Question

If a contract is signed with a Law Firm to act on your behalf with a "no win no fee" agreement and mediation fails, does the Law Firm have a duty to continue to Trial or can that Firm then say they do not believe the case has merit, although they believed otherwise before mediation, and refuse to represent you at trial

Hello
It is a matter for the solicitor, however they should have flagged with you at the outset about the merits of the case.
They do not have any duty to continue, however they DO need to advise you correctly.
I would suggest filing a complaint here, as it looks like they have been negligent.
