Our client had initially appointed a firm of “specialist“ solicitors to obtain redress for a pension transfer from a final salary pension scheme to a personal pension.
The solicitor failed completely in that the firm was no longer trading and the adviser had retired and had moved to Spain.
X-Claims sought out those responsible for the mis-sale and took the case to the FOS. Although the FOS upheld the case, it was powerless to enforce the decision and ran out of options. However, X-Claims refused to give up and pursued the original adviser in another way and obtained a settlement of £80,071.
