NB: Insurers will try to get you to use their panel Solicitors as they have agreed rates in advance, but the law states that you can choose whichever law firm you want if you have such a policy.
Most individuals are unaware that they may have legal expense insurance cover provided by their household home contents insurance policy. We always advise clients to check their insurance policy as a starting point.
