Penzance-based independent financial advisor Elite Wealth Management has launched a new insurance policy designed to give direct access to Cornish law firm Follett Stock.
The Big Red Shield offers up to £25k worth of legal services from the specialist dispute resolution lawyers.
The policy also covers claims that normal household legal insurance does not, including some criminal offences, unfair dismissal claims against employers and wrangles over inheritance.
Alan Powell, MD of Elite Wealth Management, commented: “Clients are always nervous of getting involved in legal matters. They worry they can’t afford it, and that they will end up with a solicitor they don’t know and don’t trust. With this product my clients will be able to access legal advice from the best solicitors in the region, solicitors they already know and trust.”
Follett Stock managing partner Chris Lingard added: “We have a well-known advertising slogan that says ‘Don’t get mad … get Follett Stock!’ The Big Red Shield allows everyone to do just that. They will have Follett Stock in their back pocket, ready to leap to their aid should anything go wrong.”
