Bevan Brittan LLP is delighted to have been appointed onto three lots (Core Legal Services; Employment Law and Dispute Resolution) of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme's (FSCS) Legal Services Panel Framework. The panel commenced last month and will run for three years with the potential to extend an additional year.
FSCS, the UK’s statutory compensation scheme for customers of authorised financial services firms, fits extremely well with Bevan Brittan's focus on public services. We are the only firm to be appointed across all three English law panels demonstrating the strength and depth of the legal advice offered to clients in the regulatory market which was recognised by The Lawyer in 2014 as the 'Regulatory Team of the Year'.
James Darbyshire, Head of Legal, FSCS, commented “In putting in place this panel, we are confident that we have the right firms to support FSCS in discharging its statutory functions efficiently and cost effectively in this ever-challenging regulatory landscape."
Virginia Cooper, Bevan Brittan's Client Relationship Lead for FSCS, said: "We are delighted to have been appointed to three of the FSCS panel lots which demonstrate the depth of our expertise. We look forward to supporting the FSCS in-house team with whom we have worked closely for over 7 years in recovering money from the Icelandic Banks on behalf of local authorities".
