O'Connors launches PLUS+ to support professional advisers

Liverpool and London-based law firm O’Connors has launched a new service called PLUS+ which enables lawyers, accountants, and other professional advisers to add O’Connors’ insurance and legal/financial services regulatory expertise to their advisory team when helping clients to manage risks in projects and transactions.

Once coined ‘the law firm for law firms’, O’Connors is launching PLUS+ as part of the firm’s national push into the wider professional services sector and builds on its established relationships with some of the UK’s leading professional firms.

Professional advisers tend to need insurance and regulatory advice on an ad hoc basis, often when an issue is urgent or when the advice must have the benefit of legal privilege. PLUS+ provides ready access to this advice without having to commit to long-term retainers.

With the backing of PLUS+, professional advisers can forge new client relationships in regulated sectors, strengthen existing client relationships, overcome project and transaction obstacles, and deliver better results for their clients.

Typical situations where PLUS+ can make a difference are corporate, commercial, property and infrastructure projects and transactions, particularly those with a financial services or legal services element or where risk management and insurance solutions can play a role.

The team behind PLUS+ is led by Josh Bates, supported by Sally Lazar, Kathryn Howard, Louis Hamilton, and other members of the O’Connors team.

Commenting on the launch of PLUS+, Josh Bates said: “O’Connors has been supporting professional advisers involved in major projects and transactions on insurance and regulatory matters for many years and we have taken the opportunity to bundle the offering and recruit a team that can take the proposition to a wider national audience. There is nothing more satisfying than collaborating with fellow professionals to become part of their trusted advisory team and assisting them in bringing their clients’ deals to fruition.”
