Master Elite Insurance Logo_(green)Following the recent MOJ announcement on MedCo, Medical Reporting Agencies (MROs) have been given under 4 weeks to find £1million worth of professional indemnity cover in order to be considered for the MedCo portal.

Professional indemnity insurance is not something previously required by MROs and so finding this type of cover before the April 6 deadline has led many agencies to scrabble around trying to find suitable insurance.

Elite Insurance has leapt to the aid of MROs using its existing knowledge, having previously had a medical agency legal reports & services for over 15 years, coupled with its extensive experience in writing Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Any medical reporting agencies looking for this type of cover should email medco@elite-insurance.co.uk

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
