Broker alliance offers hope to smaller firms

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.

“Consumers have the right to access to justice from a local solicitor within their own community,” said Allen. “Clarity Legal is committed to helping the small and medium-sized law firms capitalise on these opportunities and fill the void that conveyancing has left.”
