In our regular monthly update, we share the latest news from our firm.

We boosted our team with three prestigious new hires

Already boasting some of the most formidable data privacy, cybercrime, and data breach solicitors in the UK, we further strengthened our Data Breach team with two prestigious new hires. 

Associate Bill Singer joined us from Simpson Millar. He has an enviable reputation fighting against unequal odds to advance cases through the courts, and achieving resolution via negotiated settlements. Associate James Kelliher also joined us from Hayes Connor Solicitors. James has vast experience in data breach law, and has been successful on a number of multi-claimant and group action claims. We are delighted that James and Bill have joined our team as our firm goes from strength to strength.   

In addition, Paul Neville joined us as a paralegal within our Investment Fraud & Mis-selling team. A seasoned litigator, prior to joining our firm, Paul worked as a paralegal at several international and national law firms. 

Our Data Breach investigators discovered that Arnold Clark hackers had shared another 30GB of stolen customer data on the dark web

Following the initial hack, our data security experts launched an investigation into the Arnold Clark data breach, and we discovered that – in addition to the initial 15 gigabytes – a further 30GB of stolen data had been uploaded to the dark web on 14/02/2023.  

We raised awareness about stocks and shares ISA mis-selling

Our Investment Fraud and Mis-selling solicitors warned that they were seeing a rise in mis-sold stocks and shares ISA claims. Stocks and shares ISAs are not the same as cash ISAs. They carry more risk and are subject to market volatility. So, while you can earn more with a stocks and shares ISA than a standard cash ISA, there is no guaranteed return and you could end up losing money.
