We are regularly instructed to advise and represent insurers in relation to policy coverage.

Our lawyers

Our UK-wide and international network of full service firms enable us to obtain advice and representation for our clients across virtually all jurisdictions. 

Our experience

We have experience of claims involving mis-selling of investment products and tax schemes, including those with an international element.

All major financial scandals of the past decade have reached our desks including Innovator One, Madoff, Arch Cru, Keydata, Stirling Mortimer and Harlequin Properties.

Our cases include:

  • A £2million claim against a well-known City wealth manager who invested client funds in too high risk and concentrated a portfolio.
  • Numerous UCIS cases, including successfully striking out a seven figure class action by people who alleged that they were mis-sold a UCIS investment in Australian land.
  • A dispute against the independent financial advisers to professional footballers on transfers from an occupational pension scheme to SIPPs. The advice was said to have contravened the “buddy up” transfer rules and resulted in: an unauthorised payment; issues with Fixed Protection 2014 which had been set up for one of the clients; and, as one of the clients had crystallised benefits on transfer, this affected the future benefits available from his SIPPs. 

Our clients

Our clients include accountants, actuaries, auditors, independent financial advisers, trustees, stockbrokers, hedge fund managers, private equity firms and pension fund administrators.
