Might I Just Be Wasting My Time?
We only make strong and credible claims. If we consider you have no claim, we will advise you accordingly.
What If The Guilty Party Refuses To Pay?
We will take your case all the way to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). The FOS were set up by Parliament to resolve individual complaints between financial businesses and their customers. If they decide someone has been treated unfairly, they have legal powers to put things right.
What If I Have No Paperwork?
If the firm/network responsible for the advice or sale of product is still trading, we'll request documents under the data protection act, more commonly known as a DSAR (data subject access request).There is sometimes a charge, but we will pay this. Companies are legally obliged to provide documents requested. Luckily, the law is in place to help protect you.
Who Completes The Paperwork?
We make the whole process as simple and hassle-free as possible. We deal with all form filling on your behalf.
Do You Charge Up-front Fees?
You can choose to fund your claim on a 'No Win, No Fee' basis; this means that when we take on your case there will be no financial risk to you. This ensures that you do not need to worry about your legal fees.
What Does No Win, No Fee Mean?
No win, no fee is an agreement you make with us so that you can claim compensation without worrying about any upfront legal fees. Then if your compensation claim is unsuccessful, the no win no fee agreement states you will not have to pay us any money. Therefore, you do not have to pay a penny if you lose your case - the no win, no fee arrangement takes the risk out of making a claim. There are no hidden charges and you will never be out of pocket.

What If The Guilty Party Is No Longer In Business?
Sadly many of the advisers from who our clients received advice are no longer trading, and so they cannot be pursued directly for compensation, but fortunately this doesn't stop you from claiming. In these instances we can pursue your claim through the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS was set up in 2001 under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, and operates as the UK's compensation fund of last resort for customers of authorised financial services firms. They will step in where firms are unable to pay claims against it, usually because they have ceased trading or been declared in default, and if they agree someone has been treated unfairly, they have the ability to pay compensation.
