Working within our professional negligence team, I have particular expertise in financial services negligence involving the mis-selling or mismanagement of a financial product or service leading to financial loss.
In bringing professional negligence claims, I often find that clients have lost something of fundamental and personal importance to them. This may be the loss of a substantial part of their pension fund, or their business may be struggling due to being sold a costly and inappropriate financial product.
It is incredibly rewarding to be able to restore a future to a client which they believed had been lost and I love being able to provide my clients with peace of mind, striving to achieve a positive outcome as smoothly and ‘pain free’ as possible.
At a previous firm, a colleague said “Thank you for making the department what it is”.
