Master Elite Insurance Logo_(green)Elite Insurance Company Limited, current members of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and, until today, party to the General Terms of Agreement (GTA) within the Motor Insurance sector, has withdrawn its subscription to the agreement forthwith.

The GTA formalises arrangements between subscribing insurers and credit hire organisations (CHOs) for the provision of replacement vehicles to innocent third parties, notably the Credit Hire Protocol, and is a voluntary, non-binding arrangement.

As part of a general ongoing review into all arrangements with third party service providers, Elite has decided to withdraw from this arrangement with immediate effect.

Elite CEO, Jason Smart, said, “The fees being charged by CHOs and those agreed within this arrangement are excessive and unreasonable. The cost benefit of using this arrangement going forward is commercially unviable.”

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
