Exceptional Service

Independent Experts

Our aim is to provide honest, balanced expertise.

As the founding director and having trained as a Counsellor and a SOLLA accredited Chartered Financial Planner with 30 years financial expertise, I am uniquely positioned to specialise and advise the most vulnerable people in the UK, their families and legal advisers.

I created Paladin Experts with a view to bring in the highest quality of expertise to those who need it most.

Personal Financial Planning

What We do

With over 30 years financial experience, thousands of expert reports, and having developed Expert Witness reports for other firms, the time has come to launch Paladin Financial Experts.

Pension Loss helps the Claimant receive the damages that they are entitled to.

Loss of Dependency calculations help dependents receive their entitlement to post-death earnings and pensions.

Loss of Earnings helps to accurately identify an appropriate income loss across the Claimant’s lifetime.

Lost Years ensures any financial loss from a person’s reduced life expectancy is accounted for.

PPO

A PPO or Form of award report helps the Claimant and Court decide how to structure any agreed settlement. This could be a lump sum only or as a smaller lump sum with annual tax free payments for life.

A Personal Injury Trust helps protect means-tested benefits and offers additional protection to damages award recipient that can make them invaluable in ensuring that funds last throughout life.

POD reports help to unravel the significant complexities involved when separating assests fairly. More often now we are appointed as a Single Joint Expert.

We can help you with a welfare benefit review to establish if the Claimant may be entitled to additional benefits that they don’t currently receive and provide support throughout.

I have worked with Steve for a number of years. I have found him approachable and quick to respond, with a wide range of knowledge which is always made readily available. He is able to connect with Deputyship and Trust clients and tailor his approach to their level of understanding, which means that they can be confident in his abilities and their security. I have found Steve easy to work with and he is always responsive and able to discuss and resolve any queries that arise, often ensuring he goes above and beyond to make sure the interests of vulnerable people are protected

What our clients say

  • “Jane was Amazing! I am due to get my first benefits payment shortly. Completing the forms with Jane’s help was much better than trying to do alone as she is so on the ball and just made the whole process much easier and less stressful”

    Paladin Client

  • “We instructed Jeremy to provide expert evidence about the proper level of commission for introductions to be made to a financial adviser or pension fund as part of a multi-party fraud claim in the High Court of England and Wales. Jeremy was enthusiastic and passionate from the outset: from the initial conversation he started undertaking research, checking information and coming up with ideas about the best way to demonstrate and present his evidence. ”

    LF

    Testimonial from Partner at a London firm

  • “I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen as an expert witness, in particular advising on the form of the award in multi-million pound claims. Stephen recently assisted on the day of a Joint Settlement Meeting, being on the phone and at the end of emails to provide a steer on the choice between a lump sum and a Periodical Payments Order in a multi-million pound claim. He also helped with cashflow modelling on lump sum awards. The work he did to help my client with the choice between the form of the award and to help me and Counsel advise on settlement offers was absolutely invaluable.”
