  • Change and data

    ‘Change’ and ‘data’. Two relatively small words but ones that have taken on more depth and meaning over the last decade, especially when considered in the context of the legal sector.

  • Delivering on the promise

    As the winds of change continue to blow across the personal injury legal market generating uncertainty and challenge, choosing the right legal expense insurance provider can provide some welcome stability and security for law firms, insurers and their customers. But how do you select the right insurer? Yes, price is always going to be a consideration, but I’d argue it definitely shouldn’t be the driving factor.
