Chambers is delighted to announce the Publication of ‘Mis-Selling Financial Services’ by Jonathan Kirk QC, Thomas Samuels and Lee Finch (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019).
This new work offers a clear and concise analysis of the law relating to the mis-selling of financial services products. The introductory chapters cover the history of mis-selling, from their origins at common law to the modern regulated environment. It also addresses important practical points for those pleading and defending financial mis-selling claims, focussing on the various causes of action and limitation periods. It provides an overview of the UK and European regulatory framework governing the sale of financial products and considers in detail five key product types: credit, mortgages, interest rate hedging products, insurance, and collective investment schemes. Each chapter looks at the sector-specific issues and the various mis-selling ‘scandals’ of the last decade and the case-law that emerged from them.
