Action against Ingenious Media, Coutts, UBS and other IFAs for estimated losses of over £100m
David has been acting for 250 city professionals and entrepreneurs in an action against Ingenious Media, Coutts, UBS and other IFAs for estimated losses of over £100m. This large group action is being brought by HNW individuals (including a number of very well-known personalities) in a variety of film production and video games partnerships promoted by Ingenious Media Partnerships and said to have significant tax benefits in addition to commercial return from investment. Clients were sold investments into partnerships directly by Ingenious Media, or were advised to invest by a number of banks or IFA’s. Proceedings were issued in July and November 2015 against Ingenious Media, UBS, Coutts, HSBC and a number of other IFAs. The case is ongoing.
