Anyone currently operating in the financial sector will be aware of the risk of “zombie” claims. These are matters that were thought to have been buried long ago that are then resurrected when the complainant is made aware of a potential issue via the media or another source.
Whether you are the one making such a claim or defending one – for example, an Independent Financial Advisor – you should take specialist advice from a solicitor on what steps can be taken. This is because dealing with financial services claims can be costly and can take a significant amount of time to properly investigate.
This is where we can help.
Taking on the burden
Our team of experienced solicitors will take on the burden of dealing with any financial complaints that you receive as a business or that you wish to make as a complainant. Claims can be related to financial mis-selling, contractual disputes or professional negligence.
Our fixed fee offers make instructing us both cost-effective and stress-free, with no nasty surprises when the bill arrives.
Reducing the risk
We are all aware of the commercial and practical implications that claims like these can have and we will at all times alert you to the risks, limit your exposure, protect your position and advise you if a commercial settlement is the best approach.
At Harding Evans, we pride ourselves on being able to provide commercially-focussed, pragmatic legal advice to resolve whatever issue you are facing. We do not operate as a faceless commercial firm. You will always know who is dealing with your case and you will be able to speak to the financial services solicitor acting on your behalf.
Our Litigation team and its members have been recognised at the highest levels for the service and advice they deliver, so you know you are in safe hands when you instruct us.
