The Partners of Doncaster-based Beresfords were found guilty on 11 charges of serious professional misconduct.
Beresfords made millions of pounds from personal injury claims for miners through the government’s ‘coal health’ compensation scheme.
They were guilty of not giving adequate advice and entering into contingency fee deals against their client’s interests.
It was a sickening abuse of persons putting their trust in their Solicitors.
Thompsons, who act for miners in compensation claims, applaud the judgment.
