Types of work undertaken: Wixted & Co’s work involves assisting people in recovering financial losses and securing compensation for clients who have been recommended unsuitable investments, pension transfers and other similar financial products by financial advisers, wealth management companies and other connected parties.

It has currently involved in landmark group action pension litigation, representing claimants who have suffered significant levels of financial loss by transferring or investing their pensions into self invested personal pensions (SIPPs).

In many situations, these SIPPs have been used as a wrapper for investment into high risk and unregulated funds and asset classes. This has led to people suffering devastating financial losses on their pension funds and in some situations, these funds are now worthless.

The practice is proceeding with a significant number of cases where clients have suffered financial losses on such funds following unsolicited advice initially given by third parties who were not authorised or regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Wixted & Co also pursues cases for losses caused by the negligent advice or actions of other regulated professionals, such as accountants, solicitors and surveyors.

It considers and accepts cases under no win, no fee agreements and pursues all available methods of dispute resolution, which can include formal court action if liability is disputed.

It is able to consider matters where a previous complaint may have already been rejected by a financial institution or regulatory body such as the Financial Ombudsman Service.

Wixted & Co accepts case referrals for professional negligence and financial mis-selling matters. If a firm of solicitors, or any other professional, would like the practice to consider acting upon a matter, please contact Tim Wixted or Alex Bingham on tim@wixtedandco.co.uk or alex@ wixtedandco.co.uk respectively.
