Connexion Partnership (CXP) the volume recovery division of BLM, the UK and Ireland's leading risk and insurance law business is to be integrated into the BLM business from 1 April.
CXP, which will be called Volume Recovery, has operated as a separate part of the BLM legal services group since its foundation in 2001. It has grown considerably since then, and now has five partners, supported by more than 50 lawyers and claims handlers who handle in excess of 12,000 claims annually.
CXP works closely with corporate policyholders, insurers and brokers to provide legal services, including personal injury and property damage advice, to the insurance industry, complementing the work undertaken at BLM.
Volume Recovery will become part of the firm's Claims Solutions business stream. Vivienne Williams, BLM partner and head of Claims Solutions said: "CXP has been operating for almost 15 years as a separate entity. The work undertaken by the team has largely been insurance led and they have been working with a large number of the BLM customers. Bringing both CXP and BLM together will ensure that we provide a full, end to end solution for customers and continue to ensure that we operate in an increasingly competitive way. We are confident that we can guarantee a streamlined service from start to finish.”
The launch of the firm’s new Volume Recovery practice group comes hot on the heels of the unveiling of Profecta, the firm’s joint initiative with Cunningham Lindsey, one of the largest loss adjusting and claims management companies in the world. Profecta, a unique brand under which both organisations offer joint services, refocuses and reinvents claims handling by combining loss adjusting, claims handling and litigation to save customers both time and money.
