The financial sector can often feel like a maze of complexity and regulation.
With the PPI boom now subsiding and the ban on raising new PPI complaints now in place, in the first half of 2020 there was a 37% decrease in matters referred to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
Anyone currently operating in the financial sector, however, 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 or defending a claim such as this (such as an Independent Financial Advisor), you should take specialist advice on what steps can be taken. Dealing with these claims can be costly and take a significant amount of time to properly investigate.
This is where we can help. Our team of experienced solicitors will take on the burden of dealing with any financial complaints that you receive as a business or wish to make as a complainant, whether they are related to financial miss-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.
We are very aware of the commercial and practical implications that claims like these can have and at all times we will ensure we alert you to the risks, limit your exposure, protect your position and advise you if a commercial settlement is the correct approach.
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 be able to speak to the 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.
