At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

It has been reported that Standard Life bank is to pay out refunds to customers who lost money in a recent cash fund scandal.

A pension fund was mis-sold to many customers and was described as a cash haven for investors who did not want to risk their retirement savings.

However in marketing the product, standard life did not describe the fund properly and potential investors were not made aware that their savings where being put into risky financial investments such as toxic mortgages issued by Northern Rock.

Many investors lost money as a result of this and the company was fined £2.45 million by the Financial Savings Authority and forced to return over £100 million to investors.

Over 1500 complains have been lodged so far by investors looking for compensation.  The compensation is based on what the investor would have received had they invested in a safer investment rather than the pension fund.

It is thought that the company could end up paying millions of pounds in compensation.
