Oakwood Solicitors are specialists in Financial Litigation. We have been successfully claiming compensation for clients who have been deceived by banks, lenders and brokers. We have a dedicated department to assist our clients specifically for claims arising from financial mis-selling.

What is Financial Mis-selling?

Banks, lenders, brokers and Financial Advisors all have a duty to ensure you are sold and advised on a product which was suitable for your needs. In recent years it has come to light this has not been the case and millions of people have been sold products which were not suitable for them.

Millions of people have already claimed compensation for incorrect advice which has led to them being offered the wrong product.

What type of products can be mis-sold?

There are a variety of products which can be miss-sold.

  • Investments
  • Pensions
  • Timeshares
  • Mortgages
  • Credit agreements
  • Insurance
  • Payday Loans
  • Personal Contract Purchases

We may also be able to assist with a number of different products. Contact us to discuss your circumstances and we can tailor our service to meet your needs.

What do we specialise in?

  • Investments
  • Pensions
  • Timeshares
  • Mortgages
  • Insurance
  • Charges
  • Secured Loans (Undisclosed Commissions)
  • Insurance Disputes



What else can we assist with?


  • You were advised to transfer your pension and it has reduced significantly in value.


  • You were advised to purchase an investment which was not suitable for you.


  • You entered into a timeshare agreement and cannot exit the scheme and your maintenance fees have increased considerably.

Secret commissions

  • You were not aware there was a commission paid to your broker by your lender.

Excessive Charges

  • You feel the charges applied to your account by your lender have been excessive

Mortgage Mis-selling

  • You feel you have been sold a mortgage which was not suitable for you.

How much will it cost to make a claim?

  • We operate on a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), more commonly known as a ‘no-win, no-fee.’
  • If we fail to secure you a settlement, you will not be charged.
  • Any charges will be deducted from your settlement, so you will not need to pay us anything out of your own pocket.



How much compensation will I receive?

Whilst we cannot provide an exact figure until we have completed our investigation, typical values of claims are between £2,000 to £200,000. We have recovered thousands of pounds already for a number of our clients.

The general rule for compensation is to put you in the position you would have been in had you been given the correct product and advice. We have a panel of industry-leading experts who assist us with calculating the exact amount of compensation.
