Lisa Abrahams and Peter Collins

Bristol-based legal expenses insurer ARAG is continuing its expansion programme with recruitment across the board, having just announced record trading and profits and the expectation of more to come.

Of eight new starters, the latest recruits are Peter Collins and Lisa Abrahams who are now working in the South East for the BTE (before-the-event) and ATE (after-the-event) sales teams respectively. Both are well known in the field of legal of legal protection with backgrounds in insurance and the law.

Peter’s career has taken him from the magistrates’ courts to legal protection and a solicitors’ firm, before starting with ARAG as broker account manager. He will concentrate on the Home Counties (apart from the City), where he believes there are significant new business opportunities to develop and maintain profitable scheme business, whilst continuing to provide support and service to all clients.

Lisa also joined ARAG at the start of July. After 13 years in legal expenses, firstly as BTE claims handler then later as business manager and transferring to ATE as a senior underwriter, she has an extensive mix of legal and insurance knowledge to assist in the role. An associate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, she is developing new relationships with solicitors in the South East and maintaining existing ones.

Refurbishment and expansion of ARAG’s Bristol head office was completed earlier in the year. An increase of over 60% working space was acquired to accommodate the staff needed to meet projections of continuing growth in the medium to long term.

The ethics of the SRA’s social media warning notice

Mena Ruparel

Social media portals are regularly used by firms and those who work for law firms in both professional and personal capacities. Their informal nature and the fast pace of use makes it all too easy for regulated people to get carried away with online discussions or comments which can fall foul of the regulator. This is more likely to happen on social media platforms as these are virtual, accessed in the solicitor’s own time and space. It can be easy to forget that solicitors are regulated just the same at 11pm on their home computer as they are at 3pm in the office or at court.
