Who are we?

What do we do?
We are representing hundreds of clients who have suffered loss of capital or lost interest on such pensions and investments. We have recovered millions in compensation. Here is a summary of some recent settlements:
She had a final salary occupational pension plan which was valued at slightly over £73,000. She met with a financial adviser and was told that higher levels of return could be obtained by making a transfer to alternative funds.
He approached us for advice and we acted on his behalf in a claim for compensation for both the capital and interest that had been lost on the investment. We were able to negotiate a settlement of his claim. He received a total of £56,500 in compensation.
Mr R had a pension fund worth over £340,000 and met with a financial adviser to discuss his retirement options. He was persuaded to put the full amount into an investment plan and to draw income at a rate of £20,000 per year.
