Leading legal expenses provider ARAG has appointed Chris Millward to the senior management position of Head of Claims, following an extensive recruitment process.

Chris joined ARAG in 2007 and already had more than 6 years of legal expenses insurance experience when he came to the company.

He replaces Paul Upton who has headed up ARAG’s claims function since the company’s UK launch in 2006. While leaving the company as an employee, Paul will continue to work with ARAG on a number of key strategic projects.

Tony Buss, ARAG’s Managing Director, commented on the appointment: “It was important that we conducted a thorough search and selection process for such a critical role in our business, but I am delighted that we have found the outstanding candidate to join our senior management team within the company.”

“I’m equally pleased that Paul will continue to work very closely with us, to help maintain the excellent standards on which ARAG has built its success during his decade of service, at this key stage in our growth.”
Chris took up his new role on June 1st.
He added: “I’m very excited to step up into this important position and appreciate the faith Tony and the ARAG management board have placed in me. I wish to thank Paul for all his help and hard work over the years; I have learned so much from him. I’m now looking forward to building on the fantastic reputation he has established for our claims service.”

Gathering speed: The lawtech start-up world you can no longer ignore

Technology

If there are any lawyers out there who are starting to relax, believing that predictions of the demise of law as we have known it in the face of technological change have been exaggerated, they should think again as 2017 begins. A growing hum of activity by the sort of bright and industrious people who have transformed the world in many other respects is being heard in legal corridors hitherto largely undisturbed by the modern world. As their ideas achieve traction, they will disrupt the profession and perhaps even displace lawyers who imagined their careers were set to last a lifetime.
