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.”

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
