AN INSIGHT INTO THE LEGAL INDUSTRY:
The legal industry is having to deal with the impact of the economic downturn, which has led to insurance companies requiring significant cost savings. The insurance emphasis on profit-generating activities is having a widespread impact across the entire insurance sector.
The insurance industry is also attempting to change its business model to take advantage of the online selling of insurance products. This emphasis on e-commerce is creating new opportunities for insurance brokers, but insurance brokers will also need to accommodate insurance companies as they attempt to reduce insurance selling costs.
The insurance industry is expecting greater demands on the legal services market as insurance companies seek claims management and advisory services from external suppliers.
