Disputes & Claims

Making a claim for Mis-selling

Many people trust a financial advisor to give professional advice about their savings. Whether you are planning for retirement, investing for your business or just need somewhere safe for your money, it is important that the professional you put your trust in treats your money with care and attention. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.

Mis-selling occurs when you are sold a product by a financial advisor that is unsuitable or involves too much risk for your circumstances. If you were mis-sold a mortgage, pension, or other financial product then you may be able to make a claim for mis-selling.

Our mis-selling claim team is led by Alex Williams, who specialises in negligence claims in the financial services sector, including cases against financial advisers, mortgage brokers, and pension providers relating to negligent mis-selling and mis-management.

Alex has been involved in high-profile financial services cases and has a vast experience of dealing with cases involving mis-sold pensions, mortgages, SIPP mis-selling and unregulated collective investment schemes.
