8 April 2014


The Jackson Reforms took effect one year ago. With nearly a year of lessons under their collective belt, Personal injury (PI) solicitors need to shift their thinking from surviving the imminent threat to their businesses, to setting strategies for profitable growth going forward.

Insurance Services Office (ISO) has released a new White Paper which highlights five key metrics firms can measure their performance against and look to gain advantage.

  1. Cuts to claim lifecycles by an average of 40 days
  2. Stage Two claim lifecycles halved – from 24 days to 12
  3. Settlements achieved within 5 minutes in 22 per cent of claims passing through the system
  4. Settlements achieved upon first counter-offer in 46 per cent of cases
  5. Reduced time elapsing from settlement pack to response by 70 per cent on average

The statistics are from ISO clients who have seen these five key benefits using PICAS Plus, and translate to lower costs per case and the ability to handle more clients with fewer resources – exactly the balance firms need in order to start reclaiming the profits eroded by the reforms.

The white paper is available from ISO for free download here.

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
