The Claimsmiths team brings together decades of litigation expertise to get results for consumers in intellectual property, data and financial claims. We are the consumer focused part of Brandsmiths, a law firm ranked in Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and The Times for providing class leading advice to major businesses such as Microsoft, BMW, Umbro and JD Sports. The Claimsmiths team uses the same pragmatic, outcome focused approach to make sure the rights of individuals are protected in a way often only financially available to businesses. The majority of our present work involves one or more of the following:
Data is at the centre of the modern economy. Individuals have their data controlled and processed by numerous entities on a daily basis, which increases with every purchase, social media interaction and newsletter signup. We are currently handling large volumes of claims for individuals seeking compensation where their data has been lost, stolen or inaccurately held. Compensation figures vary given numerous factors, but are often £1,000 - £15,000.
Using our extensive data and regulatory law knowledge, we have launched a leading service allowing students to get full transparency on their teacher assessed grades, then appeal those grades if appropriate. This is a vital tool to allow students and parents to feel confident in the grades awarded by teachers as a result of assessment not taking places because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our team handle a range of these claims, including mis-sold financial products, negligent advice and financial miscalculations. We are also working on a number of precedent actions in this area which, if successful, will change the landscape for all consumers going forward.
