Stobarts wins ABS licence to launch legal arm alongside barrister service
Logistics company Stobart Group is to launch a law firm to complement its burgeoning barrister service after gaining an alternative business licence (ABS) from the Solicitors Regulation Authority. One Legal, which was set up by Stobart Group's legal director and founder of Stobart Barristers Trevor Howarth, will primarily provide a litigation service to insurance claims while also offering a wider service. Howarth was tight-lipped on detailed plans for the new venture, only to say an announcement would be made in the next few weeks.
