Financial services claims

Financial services claims

Financial services are regulated by Financial Conduct Authority. Incorrect and bad advice from advisors can be extremely costly to clients.

Independent financial advisors (IFAs) must consider all products on the market which may be suitable to clients at the time of their advice, if they have not done so, they may have been negligent and clients may be entitled to compensation.

Although this is the most common circumstance leading to a claim, there are also many other scenarios where action can be taken against an IFA

In cases against IFAs, clients must be able to establish the following:

  •  The IFA owed a duty to the client.
  • The IFA failed to deliver adequate or competent service or advice.
  • This advice or service was responsible for causing the client financial loss.
  • In my experience, Maitland Walker’s key strength lies in representing clients in commercial litigation who may not be familiar with the litigation process and ensuring that it is demystified such that the client can pursue the matter efficiently and effectively.
  • Julian Maitland-Walker has unrivalled experience, particularly acting for claimants. Adrian Render is also very experienced and very good
  • I really appreciated the advice being delivered in a way I could understand. Prompt response to my requests. Very efficient.
