The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has suspended the authorisation of claims management firm Cartel Client Review Ltd.
The claims management regulator confirmed that it was <a href="https://dev.bestadvice.co.uk/story.php?id=17730">investigating the North West-based firm</a> on 1 March. As a result of this investigation, it has suspended the authorisation of Cartel Client Review Ltd, with effect from today (18 March 2010). This means that the firm will no longer be able to carry out any claims management services.
The MoJ regulates claims management companies by enforcing the Compensation Act 2006 and underlying legislation.
