Clarke Willmott in Equitable Life battle

Clarke Willmott’s financial services department is acting for 700 Equitable Life policyholders in fresh claims against the mutual society. The policyholders have formed an action group, Equitable Life Trapped Annuitants (ELTA), which two weeks ago launched an action for compensation for its reduced annuity rates. Class Law and Irwin Mitchell are acting on separate claims brought by the former Equitable Life policyholders. Clarke Willmott has instructed Adrian Palmer QC of Guildhall Chambers in Bristol.
