Audrey Henshaw, business development manager, DAS UK Group

Leading legal expenses insurer, DAS, has appointed Audrey Henshaw as business development manager for the Northern region.

Audrey will be developing relationships with brokers in key defined areas, essentially Manchester and Leeds, and she will have some management responsibility for the region and its staff.

Audrey comes from an extensive legal expenses background and has experience of running her own business in the North West.  Her specialisms include the compliant handling of motor-related products and add-ons.

Audrey’s appointment coincides with the impending retirement of Geoff Ashton at the end of August, who has been with DAS for almost 30 years.

Andy Westall, group sales manager, DAS UK Group, said: “Audrey understands the legal expenses industry inside out and will be a great asset to our team.  We are delighted to have her on board.  I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Geoff for all of his hard work, commitment and invaluable contribution to the business over the years.  We wish him well in his retirement.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
