If you answered YES to the above questions then you potentially have a claim and may be eligible to join a Group Legal Action Against Post Office Limited (POL) and receive compensation.

Freeths are the lawyers acting for a large group of sub-postmasters and we are working with Justice For Sub-Postmasters Alliance (JFSA). All of the people have suffered by reason of demands by POL to pay alleged “financial shortfalls” in their branch or other action taken by POL.

Freeths are also helping a number of Crown Office employees who have suffered in a similar way.

The purpose of the legal action is to obtain fair redress through the High Court, and to recover compensation. We already have a substantial number of claimants and by joining the Group you will be strengthening the collective power of the Group. You’ll therefore be helping the hundreds/thousands of other sub-postmasters who have suffered serious consequences.

The group legal action is a High Court claim, so there is no guarantee of success, however the legal team are confident.

You should act now by registering your claim with Freeths and joining the group.
