At Barrister-Direct, we know that our clients work for years and years to build up their pensions. We save money and put little amounts aside in the hope that when we retire, we may enjoy a better quality of life.
When it comes to investing our pensions, we therefore rely upon the advice given to us. Unfortunately, this advice was not always impartial, it was not always appropriate, and, in some instances, was not always legal.
Whilst pension advisers, brokers and providers had a duty to advise clients of appropriate and sound investments, clients found themselves re-investing their pensions, and, transferring them into Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP), purchasing anything from Storage Pods to Ukrainian land, and, now face coming to terms with losing some, if not all of what was their nest egg in later life.
Instead of assisting their clients in their retirement, some pension providers encouraged clients to hold risky levels of investment to gain commission, and, to invest in schemes, which lacked transparency, accountability and full informed consent, very often, featuring overseas investments, clients had no hope of controlling.
If you feel that you were given unsuitable advice, if no one explained the risks of your pension investment, or, if you were sold a pension product that was not right for you, whether you went directly to a bank, pension adviser or, through a broker, you may have been missold your pension. Our specialist team can assist you in making a claim to recover compensation for that miss-selling and put right, the wrong that was done to you, recovering any sums that you have paid thus far, and, getting back the value of your pension, had it not have been inappropriately invested.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are many ways in which you may have been missold your pension. Common examples include where pension products weren’t properly explained, where all options were not considered, instead, customers were placed on a high-risk investment, when, in fact a steady earning product would have sufficed, where risks weren’t properly highlighted, or, where customers were encouraged to invest in products such as Ukranian Land, Brazilian Rainforests or other overseas investment, without adquate control of the product. In any of these situations, Barrister-Direct can help you.
If you were missold a pension, then you could claim back years of past payments, and, recover the value your pension would have been, had it not been inappropriately invested.
Whilst we would prefer it if you did have the paperwork, at Barrister-Direct, we understand that these things can get lost over time. We can therefore request this documentation, with your authority, from your pension provider.
Whilst it is possible to pursue your claim alone, many can involve lengthy and complicated forms, in addition to experts’ reports and documentary and witness evidence. Should you instruct Barrister-Direct, we will do all of this for you. Our expert team will guide you through each stage of the process and assist you at each and every step of your claim, until you get the compensation you deserve.
At Barrister-Direct, we work under a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly known as a ‘No Win No Fee Agreement.’ If you win, you will pay us a maximum of a 25% success fee, if you lose, you don’t pay us anything. It’s our promise.
