Solicitors Negligence in Divorce Proceedings – Failure to Value a Pension
Mrs Dinshaw brought a successful claim against her former solicitor.
She got divorced after a long marriage because her husband formed a relationship with another woman.
Mr Dinshaw’s pension was very valuable because he was a long-serving public servant.
But the solicitor for Mrs Dinshaw failed to obtain an up to date valuation husband’s pension.
Mrs Dinshaw’s settlement negotiations went very badly as a result of the solicitor’s mistake.
Mulderrigs took on the claim against the negligent solicitor.
We agreed to act on “no win no fee” terms.
A pensions expert told us that Mr Dinshaw’s pension was worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.
We issued court proceedings and then helped her settle her claim for over £100,000.
