Investment, financial services and regulatory claims

Investments go wrong for a variety of reasons, including fraud, mis-management or being mis-sold in the first place. In these situations, clients need a trusted advisor with the expertise and experience to guide them through the pitfalls of financial services regulation and offshore investment.

The Forsters Dispute Resolution team has extensive expertise providing advice to individuals and groups of investors in relation to a range of high-value failed investment schemes or products, including claims for mis-management, mis-selling or regulatory breaches under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. Our sector knowledge means that we can easily understand and efficiently resolve disputes in a financial services context.

We advise trustees, family offices and high-net-worth individuals in claims against professional services providers, financial advisors, financial institutions and investment managers. We also assist clients who are defending such claims. Our cross disciplinary approach enables us to provide commercially relevant advice without getting side tracked by the technicalities of the UK’s financial services regime.

Our track record includes the successful recovery of compensation for loss suffered by a large UK property developer as a result of mis-sold interest rate swaps. We are currently acting on a claim against a large fund manager for mis-selling an investment fund, multiple group actions against financial institutions and service providers, as well as numerous matters being determined by the Financial Ombudsman Service.
