Legal broker Clarity Connections has teamed up with claims management company AIMS Services to offer up to 20,000 cases a month to small and medium-sized law firms.
The link-up sees Clarity Connections, part of the Clementi-focused Clarity Legal Group, able to provide a funding facility of up to £250m to assist firms hit by current market conditions.
Clarity Legal Group director Stephen Allen said the future looks bleak, with 375 small to medium-sized law firms closing in September, according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
