St James’s Place is accused of negligence, mis-selling and overcharging. If you have invested with St James’s Place – even if your investment has performed well – you could be due compensation.  

KP Law has launched a no-win, no-fee group action to help affected SJP clients (and former clients) claim what they are owed.  

Read on to see our answers to some of the FAQs we have been asked about making a St James’s Place compensation claim with our expert Investment Fraud & Mis-selling lawyers.   

What is this claim about?

Historically, SJP clients have been very loyal. But that is changing as more and more evidence about negligent advice, mis-selling, and overcharging comes to light.   

The KP Law St. James’s Place (SJP) claim covers:  

Keeping things simple, our straightforward process empowers SJP clients to claim everything they are due, with one simple sign-up form. Where you are not sure what you can claim for, we can find this out for you.  

What is a group action?

A group action claim is launched where a group of people – sometimes even thousands of people – have been affected by the same issue. Group action cases are also known as multi-claimant or multi-party actions (or class actions in the US).

A group action strengthens the overall position of the claimants and can make big organisations take the matter more seriously. As a group action can have a bigger impact than a single claim, this approach increases your chances of success when claiming compensation from SJP.

I think my SJP financial advisor was negligent. Do I have a claim?

To make a professional negligence claim, you need to demonstrate that you were owed a duty of care, that the professional involved breached this duty, and that this breach caused you to suffer a loss. This can be hard to prove, as a professional is not expected to be right 100% of the time. To win your case, you must show that another experienced professional in the same field would have given different advice, or that the professional failed to follow recognised good practice. We have a history of effectively handling these types of cases and can help you make a successful claim.

What are the potential consequences of investment mis-selling?

As a result of investment mis-selling, victims might have:  

Do I need a lawyer to claim compensation from SJP?

You can make a claim without a lawyer. But while a DIY investment mis-selling claim could save you solicitor’s fees, in the end, even if you win, you might walk away with less compensation. This is often due to a lack of understanding over the law/procedures, which can put individuals at a disadvantage when up against savvy (and sometimes aggressive) defence lawyers. And, of course, if you lose your case, you will likely have to pay the other side’s costs. Because KP Law offers no-win, no-fee funding arrangements, you benefit from expert legal support without worrying about costs.

How much will I have to pay if I make a claim with KP Law?

You will only have to pay anything if you win. You will not have to pay anything upfront. Any payment would only come out of the money that we recover on your behalf. We will conduct the claim for you under a no-win, no-fee agreement. If you win, our fees will be deducted from your damages/compensation.   

How much compensation could I get?

Each case is different, but many of those affected by this case could be owed many thousands of pounds. Furthermore, just because your case is part of a group action doesn’t mean that you will receive the same amount of compensation as everyone else if successful. All claims are settled based on their merits, and you will receive what you are owed.
