DASLawAssist 200On 17 December Lord Faulks outlined that as of 1 April 2016 the recoverability of success fees and ATE premiums in insolvency cases will cease.

With only a few weeks to go, it is imperative that insolvency solicitors act now to avoid missing the cut off for recoverability in insolvency matters.

Katherine Hemsley, commercial risks development manager of DAS LawAssist comments – “If you are an insolvency solicitor and you have an insolvency case which requires ATE cover then we strongly urge you to submit this to us by Friday 11 March.

“Due to the complexities of assessing these types of cases it can take up to 10 working days to obtain an offer of insurance. Therefore if a case is received later than 11th March, we will be unable to guarantee a response before the rules on recoverability change on 1 April.“

Going social

Derek Fitzpatrick Clio

Legal professionals, as communicators, serve a crucial role in social conversations, but have not been quick to adopt a strong presence on social media. Many lawyers are reluctant to start a social media profile as they don’t foresee any benefits to having one. The bottom line is that lawyers won’t get clients from social media if they are not using it. With 62% of adults having a Facebook account, your clients – and competitors – are using social media and you can no longer afford to treat it as an afterthought in the digital age.
