MSB Blog - The Verdict
You’re probably fed up of receiving cold calls informing you about your mis sold PPI.  It’s impossible to escape the frenzy and this is the reason why many people haven’t even checked to see if they are entitled to make a claim.
 
The Financial Ombudsman Service estimates that £50bn of PPI policies were sold over the last 10 – 15 years.  The approximate bill to the banks so far is £22bn which suggests that there is still a long way to go in this compensation process.
 
Since 2011, the estimated average monthly payout by the banks is £390m.  In 2014 alone, the average monthly payout is £440m.  So, whilst many of you might think (and even hope) that the scandal is coming to an end, think again.

The government want to cut the number of firms nationwide carrying out criminal work from 1,600 firms to 525. More than two thirds of firms will be wiped out and their staff will lose their jobs.
 
I can hear some of you cheering already. Grasping lawyers lining their pockets by getting lowlife off serious offences.
 
But behind that stereotype lies a very different truth.
 
Most  of my clients have never previously been in trouble with the police.
 
Most are in work, have families and live law abiding lives. Some even vote Tory.

The list is endless.
