A specialist legal firm working with several industry players in the areas of insurance fraud and complex personal injury claims has joined the Association of British Insurers (ABI).
Horwich Farrelly, which has headquarters in Manchester and offices in five other major UK cities, is the latest company to become an ABI associate member.
"We are delighted to have become an Associate Member and welcome the opportunity this provides for working more closely both with our clients and other ABI members to address the evolving issues facing the industry,” said Ronan McCann, a Horwich Farrelly partner.
Like other associate members, Horwich Farrelly will benefit from various ABI services including access to statistics, industry updates, thought leadership work, networking opportunities and reduced rates for the events of the association.
ABI developed the associate membership category to enable non-insurance companies to join the association, such as legal firms, consultants, price comparison sites, and other firms which help insurers deliver their services.
"I warmly welcome Horwich Farrelly to our growing list of Associate Members. It is a firm which already works with a number of our members, particularly in the areas of insurance fraud and complex personal injury claims,” said ABI Director General Huw Evans.
“As the Government rightly considers how best to address the compensation culture it will be invaluable to have Horwich Farrelly working even more closely alongside us and the rest of our members to help shape these important reforms,” Evans added.
Founded in 1969, Horwich Farrelly has become one of the leading providers of legal and handling services to the UK general insurance claims sector.
