NAB engage lawyers to challenge Zolfo Cooper

Published 14/02/2013 00:00:00 in Press Releases

The RMI’s National Association of Bodyshops (NAB) today announced that they have formally engaged their lawyers to challenge Administrator Zolfo Cooper’s interpretation of how insurer payments should be dealt with and who is entitled to those funds following the recent collapse of accident management company, Drive Assist.


Tony Lowe, RMI Board member representing NAB members affected, commented “NAB has been in consultation with the Administrators to secure payments to its members for accident repair services provided to Drive Assist’s customers.


“However following Zolfo Cooper’s decision not to honour the repairers’ funds following the collapse of Drive Assist, NAB has now retained motoring experts MILS Solicitors along with Richard Lissack QC, an expert in commercial and regulatory disputes, to pursue this matter.


“The fact that the repair community has been left out of pocket to the sum of a massive £7 million is entirely unacceptable. Therefore NAB is committed to fighting this on its member’s behalves.”
