A good reliable Solicitor
Extremely reassuring about the whole process and thoroughly explained everything to me at every stage. The company's approach I found was most efficient. I can recommend Oakwood Solicitors as the outcome for me was fast and hassle-free.
- R. Clevett
Refund for lost investment
Successfully argued my case and won me a refund of over £13,000! I was informed about the proceedings throughout and at all times found Junaid very polite and considerate. I believe the refund was obtained very much due to his skill in presenting my case persuasively, which was crucial. I am very grateful to him.
- S. Pleydell
Financial Litigation Department
Very courteous and professional service. Was kept well informed and was delighted with the result and speed of outcome.
- J. Fowlie
I was so pleased
I had the best experience from Oakwood Solicitors where they helped me get big compensation from FSCS. Not only that, just within 4 days' time of literally submitting the claim, I received the amount in my account.

What went wrong with Blue Index Ltd?
Blue Index Ltd (Formerly CFD Direct Limited) was an investment advisory brokerage focusing on advice relating to Contracts for Difference (CFDs).
In 2009 the Directors of Blue Index were charged and jailed for insider trading. The company was also forced to close by the regulator. Whilst some individuals made a profit there is no doubt many have lost thousands of pounds following the advice and recommendations made by Blue Index Ltd.
Have you been affected?
1. Did you trade CFD’s on the advice of Blue Index?
2. Did you fail to see a return of your investment?
3. Did you come out with less than you originally investment?
If you have answered yes to any the above questions, please contact Oakwood Solicitors urgently as we may be able to help!
What is CFD Trading?
CFD trading is a short-term investment model that allows traders to speculate on the price volatility of a particular asset, commodity or index without having to actually purchase the underlying security.
We have a dedicated page on CFD Trading here, should you need more information.

How long does a claim take?
There are a number of features that will impact how long a claim may take to conclude. These include the complexity of the case, whether the claim is against an active adviser, the Financial Ombudsman or the FSCS, and whether liability is admitted or denied.
If liability is admitted, then the claim process is much shorter, and we would expect a claim to be concluded within 3-6 months. Alternatively, if liability is denied and the claim must be issued at court then the claim can take between 12-18 months depending on the availability of the court.
If the claim is been made against the FSCS then we would expect the claim to be concluded within 6 months.
As each case is unique it is difficult to provide a generic timeframe for conclusion of the claim however Oakwood Solicitors will give you an indication of how long your claim is likely to take to conclude as part of our initial review.
How much will a claim cost?
We operate on a Damages Based Agreement (“DBA”) more commonly known as a ‘no-win, no-fee’ agreement. If we fail to secure you a settlement, you will not be charged. If we successfully recover compensation, then our charges are 30% plus VAT of any compensation payment. These charges will be deducted from the compensation payment at the end of the claim process.
How much compensation will I receive?
If you have a viable claim, then you will be able to recover compensation equivalent to the losses that you suffered. In addition, you can also recover the commission fees and charges that Blue Index deducted from your account.
If you lost £10,000 then you will receive £10,000* in compensation. (*minus Oakwood Solicitors Ltd‘s fees of 30% plus VAT)
