Also this month, KP Law (then Keller Postman UK) was ranked Band 2 in the Chambers and Partners UK 2024 Guide for Group Litigation: Claimant. 

Members of our senior team were commended for their expertise, with Managing Director Andrew Nugent Smith ranked Band 2, Partner and Head of Investment Fraud and Mis-selling Mark Kenkre ranked Band 3, and Senior Associate Nathaniel Barber noted as an Associate to Watch. 

The guide noted our experience in representing consumer classes, affirming that we are “well equipped to handle complex and substantial group claims across a broad spectrum, including workers’ rights, emissions litigation, data breaches and financial mis-selling.” 

Hannah Wright Jones was promoted to Partner


We were delighted to announce that Hannah Wright Jones had been promoted to the position of Partner. Hannah’s depth of experience and outstanding legal acumen have been instrumental in our biggest cases. Her promotion is a recognition of her value to the firm and a vote of confidence in her ability to help lead our groundbreaking work in the class action sector.

We continued to pursue our action against St. James’s Place

In September, we launched a group action to help affected SJP clients get compensation for negligence, mis-selling and overcharging. In October, our investigations into SJP continued.  



We launched two new data breach group actions

In October, our Data Breach team launched two new group actions:  

      • Spanish airline Air Europa suffered a cyberattack on its online payment system. Some customers’ credit card details have been exposed in the breach. 
      • Customers of Lyca Mobile may have had their personal information exposed following a cyberattack. The breach happened after hackers broke into the mobile operators’ systems. While not confirmed, it is thought this might have been a ransomware attack. 

We look forward to bringing you more news from across our business next month.

In February 2024, our firm changed its name from Keller Postman UK to KP Law.
