Ageas Law LLP, which starts trading from 8 April 2013, achieved approval from the Solicitors Regulation Authority on 28 March 2013 and has been launched as part of a five year limited partnership arrangement between Ageas Legal LLP and NewLaw Legal Ltd.
Commenting on the partnership, Andy Watson, CEO Ageas UK said:
“The objective of launching Ageas Law is to provide Ageas customers with access to a claims service above market norms. Creating this partnership provides our customers with a one stop, high quality journey, with fewer hand offs to third party suppliers. Our approach is to enable our customers to access a legal solution that can be trusted. The expertise that NewLaw has in this field helps us to achieve this standard.”
Philip Dicken, Strategic Partnerships Director, NewLaw Solicitors added:
“We’re delighted to be linked with such a strong and reputable brand in the insurance sector. The partnership will provide Ageas customers with an integrated claims service, improving the overall customer proposition, at the point when a customer may need to claim for personal injury. At the same time, working together brings an opportunity to improve access to justice, a stated aim of the Legal Services Act, as well as increase consumer confidence in legal services and drive fraudulent and spurious claims from the process.”
The partnership will provide non-fault motor customers access to quality legal services to manage personal injury claims sustained after a motor incident.
