Conference preview

In her 2014 address MASS chair Susan Brown questioned the future for claimant access to justice and the tendency of defendants to cry ‘fraud’. Read our conference preview for a glimpse at what the MASS and APIL Clin Neg Conferences have in store…

The first week of October will see RTA and clinical negligence specialists meeting at opposite ends of the country for two important events. In Manchester, the Motor Accident Solicitors’ Society Annual Conference meets for its annual get together, while the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers’ residential Clinical Negligence conference convenes in Brighton.

Premex is headline sponsor at Mass, while Premex +, the company’s complex injury service will have a delegation on the South Coast to advise practitioners on the latest products and solutions. “These are two important events for Premex customers,” says Chris Wheatley Sales and Marketing director of Premex Group. “With our support RTA solicitors are adapting to the new world of MedCo, while clinical negligence solicitors continue to instruct Premex + in greater numbers. It’s essential that we maintain a strong presence in the market as an approachable brand with the sector’s best interests at heart. I’m looking forward to the outcomes of both events in what is a pivotal time for the industry.”

The agendas are certainly full to the brim. Mass begins on 8th October with speeches from Covea Insurance’s Head of Financial Crime Steve Jackson, followed by panel discussions and insight on mediation and ADR.

Premex’s involvement is highlighted in the afternoon panel discussion with an esteemed panel including Group Chairman Simon Margolis and MedCo’s independent chair Lorraine Rogerson discussing the challenges and opportunities presented by the portal six months since its launch.
