Ryan: leveraging power of Co-op brand

The Co-operative Legal Services (CLS) has launched a comprehensive, one-call accident management service for brokers and insurers.

The new service highlights the way that non-legal brands can pull together a range of services, of which legal help is just one part, to offer consumers a full package that lawyers willl struggle to match.

CLS aims to offer the full range of assistance needed to get motorists mobile and claims resolved following a road traffic accident. With one call, it said it will take responsibility for all the appropriate services, including: at-scene assistance and recovery; replacement vehicle provision; underwriter notification and liaison; repair management; salvage solution; claims management; legal expenses insurance; and online repair tracking

CLS managing director Eddie Ryan said: “With the economic challenges facing many providers, we believe there is an opportunity to leverage the power and financial strength of The Co-operative Group brand. We will provide an ethical and reliable customer-focused service that gets people mobile and achieves claim resolution as quickly as possible.”

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.
