The mis-sale to us of an Interest Rate Hedging Product by our long term bank led to the most stressful and traumatic period that my wife and I have experienced. William Fox-Bregman has now negotiated a successful resolution for us. We are immensely grateful to William and his colleagues.

Mr Edwards

A great outcome thanks to Will Fox Bregman and Luke Baldwin who worked very hard to resolve matters on my behalf. I would thoroughly recommend this firm of solicitors.
