SSB Law professional negligence claims

Were you represented by SSB Law in relation to a cavity wall insulation claim on a ‘no win no fee’ and are now being pursued for legal court costs or other charges? If so, we are here to help.

Hugh James currently acts for clients bringing claims for professional negligence seeking to recover losses incurred due to the handling of their cavity wall insulation claims by SSB Law. The average legal costs our clients face is in the region of £20,000.

SSB Law was placed into administration in January 2024 owing six litigation funders in excess of £200M but it has professional indemnity insurance cover in place to meet claims.

SSB Law handled many thousands of claims relating to cavity wall insultation before running into difficulty. The clients that we represent are being pursued for costs payable to the other side on cases that were unsuccessful despite their cases being handled on a ‘no win no fee’. The costs range from £10,000 to £50,000.
