Fletchers partners with Frenkel Topping to launch new financial advice service for claimants

Fletchers Solicitors has partnered with Frenkel Topping to offer a bespoke financial advice service to its personal injury and clinical negligence clients.

Called Fletchers Financial Investment Services (FFIS), it will provide specialist financial advice and support to clients following the settlement of their claim. The firm says that it has decided to create the service to help “extend its offering to clients”.

Frenkel Topping is a leading independent financial advisor with over 35 years’ experience in financial advice for personal injury and medical negligence claims. Through FFIS, the IFA will offer specialist financial advice and protection on the investment of claim settlements, as well as full guidance on receiving welfare benefits and setting up personal injury trusts. It will also provide clients with advice on how to effectively budget or invest compensation to ensure it lasts a lifetime.

Adrian Denson, director of serious injury at Fletchers Solicitors, said: “We strive to provide a first-class service to all of our clients to effectively support them through the entire claims process. Based on our many years’ experience, we know that clients often require additional support and advice once their claim has been settled and compensation has been awarded. Whether that’s understanding how best to utilise their settlement, how to adjust to their new lifestyle or ensuring they are financially stable.

“For this reason, we wanted to create a service that would help us extend our support to our clients. We searched long and hard to find a partner with the same exceptionally high standards as ours that would help us to provide long-term financial advice and support to our clients. We found these qualities in Frenkel Topping and we know that we will be placing our clients in safe, expert hands.”

Richard Fraser, MD of Frenkel Topping Group, said: “I am delighted that our two businesses have agreed this new partnership to help support victims of serious injury and medical negligence after their claims have settled.

“Through FFIS, we are now able to help guide Fletchers’ clients along their journey, giving them peace of mind that their finances are protected and their long-term needs will be met.”
