Ageas received approval for conversion to an alternative business structure (‘ABS’) from the Solicitors Regulation Authority on 28 March, and NewLaw received its ABS licence last April. The firms have made a five-year partnership arrangement - the very first of its kind under the Legal Services Act.
Philip Dicken, strategic partnerships director at NewLaw, said: "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."
