Ellis Jones Solicitors launched its banking and financial litigation department in 2012, originally to handle cases involving the mis-selling of interest rate hedge products.

The department, which has grown to 14 including solicitors and paralegals, now acts for a wide range of clients who believe they have been mis-sold a financial product or mistreated by a bank or financial institution.

William Fox Bregman, partner, who founded the department, which was originally based in Charminster, said, “Our reputation for handling this type of work has reached the stage that we need larger offices to accommodate our expanding team.

“We act for clients across the UK and demand for our services is growing all the time. Recent years have seen us successfully claim back around a £1m a month from banks. In September, alone, the team has recovered a staggering £2.1m for our clients.

“All sorts of financial scandals are emerging on a regular basis and not just in the banking and finance sector. We have also diversified into associated sectors including high value gambling claims.

“It is very satisfying recovering life-changing amounts of money for clients who have literally been at their wits end after falling victim to mis-selling. The behaviour of some banks and financial institutions has been quite shocking.”

Managing partner, Nigel Smith, added, “We now have six offices across the South Coast – Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs in Poole, Ringwood, Swanage, Wimborne and now Christchurch – as well as a London office. Demand for our services continues to grow all the time.”

The launch of the Christchurch office comes as Ellis Jones’ banking and financial litigation team is ranked Tier 2 in the latest Legal 500.
