Claims management companies

I have a good working knowledge of claims management law and practice including the workings of the Compensation Act 2006, and the secondary legislation made under it.

I have advised claims management companies on the legality and enforceability of their retainers.

I can advise claims management companies or solicitors on the legality of referral arrangements of claims and in particular how to ensure that the referral fee ban in LASPO 2012 is complied with.

I am familiar with data protection law, and the law of confidence, issues which can arise when personal data is transferred between claims management companies and solicitors.

I have advised individuals how they may challenge improperly drafted Damages Based Agreements.

I can advise on complaints to the Legal Ombudsman.

I am able to advise solicitors on their obligations to their clients who have contracted with claims management companies.
