Investors in the Enterprise House development in Leicester were advised by a number of firms of solicitors. One of those firms was Wilsons Solicitors. They relied on Northern and Western Insurance Company, based on the Caribbean island of Nevis, to provide the security of a deposit bond for their clients.
However, following the failure of the developer whose work NWIC was supposed to guarantee, the collapse of Northern and Western Insurance Company themselves, a company that was unrated and unregulated in the UK, has left these investors high and dry.
We are already representing a significant number of clients who have lost their deposit on this development and would like to hear from other investors who have been affected by this issue.
We are hard at work pushing forward these cases to the next level to obtain justice for our clients and we have already made significant progress. We are in daily contact with the appropriate solicitors, insurers, administrators and liquidators, demanding information to help us further a claim of professional negligence against our clients’ legal advisors.
Our investigations into the case and the various parties involved are continuing and we are preparing for the possibility of a Group Litigation Order being made in due course. See our FAQ section for further details.
It’s helpful if you’re quick to start a claim as the records and investigations will be readily available and the detail of the event will still be ‘fresh’ in your mind, which will help when putting your case together. There is also a three year time limit from the injury. Usually if you attempt to bring a claim after this date, it will be considered ‘statute barred’ or ‘out of time’ under the Limitation Act of 1980, Section 11. If you are within the time limit, or are unsure as to whether you fall within the time period allowed, you can speak to us and we’ll be able to advise you as best we can based upon the information you’re able to share with us.
After a free initial phone consultation, a specialist group claims solicitor can get a feel for your circumstances, the problems you face and consequences you’re having to live with. If they feel that something wasn’t done, that should have been, and your case should be investigated further, they will go on to request copies of your records, with your permission. We will tell you if we think you have a case that will succeed and equally importantly if we do no think we will tell you as soon as possible.
Throughout your claim, Your Legal Friend will help you every step of the way
I am very happy and satisfied with the settlement you achieved for me and the service was excellent and thank you very much

Pay nothing if you lose your case, get maximum compensation if you win
Whatever the nature of your group claim, we always seek the maximum level of compensation for our clients – and if your case is unsuccessful, we don’t charge you any fees. This is our guarantee for all standard personal injury claims.
With our no win, no fee guarantee, you pay nothing, unless you win your compensation claim. At that point you will only pay your insurance premium, if applicable, and the success fee, which will never be more than 25% of the amount you win.
