Bristol firm Ringrose Wharton & Co is handing some of its pensions miss-selling cases to Shacklocks of Mansfield and Nottingham to enable it to keep to the strict timetable set by the Bristol Mercantile Court, where an expert pensions judge is handling all the cases in the UK. The practice is acting for many of the hundreds of individuals and unions around the country who are suing insurance companies because they were mis-sold personal pensions. The bulk of Ringrose Whartons' cases come from the nursing union, the Royal College of Nursing, many of which members were persuaded to leave the NHS pension scheme. Partner Robert Wharton said that his firm had joined forces with Shacklocks to drive forward the litigation.
