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.

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.
