Looking After You and Your Business

While we love working with your businesses what about you? We want to look after you as well.

Have you invested some of your hard-earned gains in overseas property which was never built or never made a penny in rent despite what your IFA told you? Are you now saddled with an interest-only mortgage debt as a result? Were you happy enough with your pension before someone (who ought to have known better) rang you up and told you that Cambodian green oil was a good option? Or buried treasure? Or have you invested in a tax scheme such as a film scheme or patent relief scheme you were told was as safe as houses but now you are being chased by HMRC?

If this is you then contact us in confidence: Jamie Magill has extensive experience in obtaining financial compensation for the victims of systemic mis-selling.

Like a bet? Has your bet ever hit the crossbar? So you win 9 out of 10 in your accumulator but one lets you down? It’s always the favourite at home too! But what if you have won and they refuse to pay out? They rely on hidden Terms and Conditions? Sound familiar? JCLM has experience in dealing with such breach of contract claims through Operators’ complaints processes, ADR and- where necessary- through court action and litigation.

JCLM also calls the Gambling Companies to account for failing to adequately identify and treat problem gamblers and for failing to maintain adequate systems to detect patterns connected with problem gambling.

JCLM is actively participating in the current review of the Gambling Act, is seeking to challenge outdated case law in this area and is a staunch proponent of the establishment of a Gambling Ombudsman to provide fairer compensation for affected customers.

I engaged with Jamie to assist me with my dispute. Matters had become circular and it felt as though I was becoming a little out of my depth with a legal process appearing inevitable. Jamie unselfishly encouraged me to keep dialogue going and armed me with a greater understanding around the law relating to my dispute. This resulted in far improved dialogue with the other party and an eventual settlement.
