It’s a great achievement by RGL to add so many new claimants to the ongoing litigation and is testimony to their expertise in this area.Ian Lightbody, Chairman and Founding Member of the Virgin Money Remediation Support Group
The VM RSG will continue our work in assisting victims of Clydesdale Bank and NAB on a number of fronts, one of which is backing the RGL group action as the route to a recovery of serious losses suffered by fixed rate TBL borrowers at the hands of these banks.
This is the first multi-party claim against a bank by its customers since the financial crash. We are confident this action will secure substantial compensation for the claimant group.Garbhan Shanks, partner at Michelmores
