Leigh Day Solicitors – Pension Challenge Claimants Update 

Members of the pension challenge group represented by Leigh Day Solicitors have been notified a settlement offer has been made in respect of compensation. As a result, members who lodged claims with PFEW have asked how this impacts on their claim. 

PFEW claims are separate and the settlement discussions with Leigh Day on behalf of their own clients do not relate to those lodged by the UK and international law firm Penningtons Manches Cooper (who were instructed by PFEW). PFEW’s claims are not as far along the legal route, and any compensation which may be awarded regarding those claims will be considered by a Court at a later date. 

Please also note, the window to join the PFEW Claim with Penningtons has closed. 

 

That is all the information we can give you at the moment.  As soon as we have more information, we will of course let you know.
