Financial Disclosure – Potential Errors

You may have seen some recent publicity that Form E financial disclosure forms downloaded from the government website contain a glitch where seemingly the total of gross assets is wrong.

Despite the publicity, we do not think this will impact significant (if at all) but there is always the risk that an error may have occurred in Court approved settlements. If you think you may have been affected, we will be happy to advise and assist. The judiciary have been aware of the potential issue, although we do not consider it to be very likely that very many people (if any) would have consented to a settlement for Court approval that they felt was excessive.
