Black Country Chamber of Commerce Announces New Legal Expenses Insurance Cover

Corin CraneThe Black Country Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce a new and improved Legal Expenses Insurance package for members. This new cover started on Monday and has already been well received by local businesses.

Mark Timmins, Managing Director at Timmins Whittaker, commented: “Going back to when we first partnered with the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, we knew that whilst the previous Members Legal Expenses policy had provided vital support to local businesses in the past, there was room for improvement that we could address.

“Through working with Abbey Legal Protection, we are delighted to have put in place a fantastic offering to Chamber members that provides real tangible value and support in running their respective businesses, which is included as a part of their existing membership package for no extra cost!”

There are many different facets of cover to the new offering and members will be hearing about how this cover can be integrated to support them in running their business. For example, there is an unlimited, local-rate 24-hour legal helpline that effectively gives members access to a qualified solicitor on speed dial to talk through any business-related issue they may have. Abbey Legal took over 225,000 calls last year, 85% of which were totally unrelated to the actual insurance cover provided, showcasing that this is just one of the many areas that provides support to members in running their business, and not just for when something may have already happened.

Corin Crane, Chief Executive of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, added: “This new Legal Expenses Insurance cover supplied by Abbey is a great product and will offer genuine savings to our members. I would encourage everyone to take some time to see what they now get for free as part of the Chamber membership as it might save them paying for cover they no longer need.”
