Ageas and NewLaw Solicitors have entered into a five-year partnership arrangement as the insurer, fresh from receiving its ABS licence, moves into the legal world.
Ageas Law LLP, which started trading on 8 April 2013, will see NewLaw Solicitors to provide legal services for Ageas' customers making non-fault personal injury claims.
“The objective of launching Ageas Law is to provide Ageas customers with access to a claims service above market norms,” said Andy Watson, the CEO of Ageas UK.
“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 at NewLaw Solicitors said that the partnership would result in “an opportunity to improve access to justice” and to “increase consumer confidence in legal services and drive fraudulent and spurious claims from the process.”
