Experience Profile

Faser is a Paralegal in the Dispute Resolution department at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in London.

He works in the interest rate hedging products mis-selling team, which acts for small and medium sized enterprises who were mis-sold complex financial derivative products, seeking redress for clients from the UK’s main banking institutions.

Many claims are advanced and facilitated through the FCA’s Review Scheme although Faser also acts for a number of clients seeking recourse through different venues such as, the court and the Financial Ombudsman Service.
