Questions & answers

Is this webinar a repeat of the one earlier this year?
No. This webinar is all-new, with a different future and action focused agenda (see above)

The first webinar covered the history of the debacle and the situation at that time. Including an excellent explanation of What Went Wrong by Ed Croft, CEO of Stockopedia. A recording is available here

Who is this webinar for?
It’s aimed at Woodford Investors, who…

  • Have yet to join the ShareSoc Woodford Campaign
  • Have yet to join a Legal claim or are trying to decide which legal claim to join
  • Are existing Campaign members
  • Are existing Leigh Day claimants?”

The many thousands of Legal claimants and Campaign members deserve an update on what is happening. And those who have yet to decide to join the Leigh Day claim will be helped to understand that it’s a no-lose option.

The legal claim are purely focused on redress (i.e. compensation) – the ShareSoc campaign has additional goals of holding people to account and changing regulation to stop it happening again.

The more people join the ShareSoc campaign, the more clout we will be able to wield in persuading the regulator and government to make changes to make sure this does not happen again.

“Are we trying to persuade people to do anything?”
The webinar also provides an opportunity for those not familiar with ShareSoc and Leigh Day to learn more about our Woodford Campaign and Leigh Day’s Legal Claim. ShareSoc chose to endorse this claim above others (see here for rationale)

ShareSoc believe it is essential for all the 300,000 potential Woodford claimants to register with any of the claims where there is a proper no-win-no-fee arrangement. And in this webinar we will provide an overview of the various claims.

To highlight the opportunity for those of the 10,000 plus who registered with other legal firms (other than Leigh Day) that they can convert to Leigh Day’s claim if they have not already signed a contract with another firm, if they so choose and it is appropriate for their circumstances.

Cliff Weight and Amit Vedhara, ShareSoc Directors and Woodford Campaign Leaders.
