In April 2013 we approached Adam Finch, Partner at Harrison Clark Rickerbys Ltd who specialize in hedge funding claims in order to help us seek compensation for the IRHPs that were mis-sold to us . During that time we were guided throughout the complicated process by Adam in order to put our case forward to the bank.
During the months that we were involved in negotiations with the bank, we found Harrison Clark Rickerbys to be totally professional, thorough and supportive, ensuring that we were fully aware of the procedures and actions needed to be taken in support of our claim. Their advice was invaluable and as “non-sophisticated customers” felt that we were given every opportunity to fight our claim.
We are extremely pleased that the outcome was successful and we were awarded the full claim amount plus compensation in December 2013. Without Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ guidance and support, I do not feel that we may have necessarily achieved the same result.
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Adam Finch to anyone, he was extremely helpful, understanding and supported me with a very difficult and sensitive matter.”

I am taking this opportunity to thank you and your team for successfully conducting my company affairs regarding the above matter with XXXX bank.
We are very pleased that XXXX has accepted full liability and we have now received full settlement from the bank.
I must state that without your expertise and knowledge, help and support from yourself and your staff, it could have been difficult to achieve a successful and satisfactory outcome from XXXX bank.
I would again like to thank you and your firm for your professionalism and expertise in dealing with this matter.
It has been a tortuous and torturous slog getting to a point of resolution but with many thanks to you it has all been worthwhile. I can’t believe it’s all over!
This case was one of the worst experiences in my professional life, which is a big deal after twenty four years in business.
It was so stressful and worrying and that is why I was so very grateful for the opportunity for a chat with you when I was in Australia. So I wanted to say thank you Adam for your professionalism but also your support and kindness, it has meant more to me than you will know.
Best wishes for your future.
Adam Finch is giving me expert advice about a difficult situation (as shareholder and non-executive director) I find myself in regarding the activities of the managing director of the company. He has been a tremendous help and is taking me step by step through a process of sorting this out. I am very grateful to him.

Gave them a call earlier this week as have an agricultural related query & thought they might be better than the Federation of Small Business advice line which I normally use for horse/farm stuff.
I spoke direct to Alison Godwin (no call centres!)who was very helpful, explained what I needed to do & wasn’t at all pushy about getting me to use them for the work needed etc.
Thank you Harrison Clark Rickerbys & definitely worth taking advantage of this part of membership if required.

Words can not express how thrilled we are with this result. We can not thank you enough, your professionalism and empathy in dealing with this incident.
Mr and Mrs Scott
I would like to thank you so much for all your advice and help with our unfortunate horse situation .
You have been knowledgeable, patient and empathic giving us the support we needed .
Thank you so much for your clear and prompt reply to my questions.
Just wanted to thank you for the advice you gave me regarding the horse I bought which was not as described, using the British Dressage free advice scheme. After speaking to you I sent the dealer a letter rejecting the horse and asking them to collect the horse and return my money within 14 days. They transferred the money immediately, and the horse was collected last night (6 days later)
I am so grateful, and would recommend you to anyone in the same position.
Thank you so much for your tenacity and consideration during the recent transaction. You’ve been generous with your time and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you again. Not straightforward but you got us there!
HCR provided a fantastic service level and the highest quality of advice on this transaction. Alison and her team always looked for practical soluitons, were excellent at steering us through key legal points, were throughout easy to communicate with and were always very flexible and on top of their subject matter, all of which was not easy in a process that stretched over several months. I would happily use them again and would unreservedly recommend them.
“When selling your small company to a Global corporation you very soon feel out numbered. They have teams of specialists that understand all the ins and outs of acquisition and for me, even the words and phrases they used were new. Alison Scott and her team soon put some balance in to the negotiation and by the end, for every point we conceded they moved ten. Do not sell your business without Harrison Clark Rickerbys!”
Gary Allcock, PEO Controls Europe Ltd.
Our Company were very pleased with the work that you did to successfully complete our sale. The process however tense, was helped by the fact that at all times your staff were very professional and it was clear that you had our interests at heart throughout the process.
Thank you for your dedication, your competence and your professional approach. You listened to what we wanted and delivered exactly that. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your colleagues.
Having recently completed a sale process of my business to another UK company I can say, without hesitation, that the work carried out on my behalf by Harrison Clark Rickerbys was exemplary.
The work was carried out by Harrison Clark Rickerbys, led by Partner, Alison Scott, and her trainee solicitor Caminelle Apperly. Cami proved to us in every respect that she has the knowledge and the skill to handle even the most complex tasks and always with a view to making the clients’ journey as professional and smooth as possible. Cami had to liaise with a significant number of people within my business and she was able to communicate, what can sometimes be complicated information, in a way that they were able to understand. I have no doubt that Cami is heading for a great career in the law!
My thanks go out to Alison for keeping me grounded and calm when inside I was far from that!”
Jason Cross – Managing Director, FAB Recycling Limited
“My company engaged the services of Harrison Clark Rickerbys during the sale of the business. This was an easy decision as they had previously acted for us when acquiring a few other businesses. We have always been impressed by their professionalism and pragmatic approach. They worked very well as a team with our professional advisers at Springboard Corporate Finance. It was both rewarding and even at times an enjoyable process. We would not hesitate to recommend their services to any prospective client.”
