Claim compensation for the mis-selling of financial products

The world of investments, pensions and tax is complex. When it comes to advice in this area, claims are on the horizon when someone receives, and acts upon, inadequate or misleading professional advice and loses money as a result. For example, being encouraged to make investments which presented more risk than someone had been led to believe, or encouraging someone to take part in a tax-mitigation vehicle without explaining the potential downsides.

Our highly successful team have extensive experience in pursuing financial mis-selling compensation for those mis-advised by individual advisers, firms, and financial institutions, and are fully committed to achieving the best outcome for you.
