    David Wright


    David is a Solicitor within the professional negligence department who has developed a specialism in financial services and investment disputes whilst retaining an interest in professional negligence generally.


    David has acted for a large number of clients who have sought redress from IFAs, banks, brokers and other entities involved in the financial sector. Within this field David has advised on the full range of financial products including pensions, annuities, regulated lending, investment bonds, derivatives and other obscure financial products. The common theme is that financial loss has arisen as a result of poor investment advice.

    David seeks to maintain a positive relationship with all of his clients and to guide each one through the litigious process to reach their desired outcome. David understands the severe impact poor investment advice can have on an individual or company and the need for swift and firm action in the pursuit of a remedy. The vast majority of cases David is instructed in settle without the need for a full trial.


    David is a member of London Litigation Solicitors Association, and the Chartered Insurance Institute (“CII”) having taken CII exams in the area of regulated financial advice.
