NAHL Group, the owner of National Accident Helpline, has announced plans for a new joint venture with award-winning Manchester-based law firm Horwich Cohen Coghlan (HCC) Solicitors.
The new Alternative Business Structure (ABS) will be named Law Together and will be based at HCC’s offices in Castlefield, Manchester.
Law Together will start trading in early October 2019.
Award-winning law firm HCC Solicitors specialises in helping seriously injured and traumatised clients get recompense for long-term rehabilitation and treatment.
The firm employs more than 250 people in Manchester and recently launched a new office in Birmingham headed up by experienced serious injury lawyer Joe Speed.
