“The implementation of Legal-X will help Brit better manage loss adjustment expense, enhance internal efficiencies and track our legal expert spend,” said Sheel Sawhney, Group Head of Claims for Brit. “The solution complements our commitment to using technology and innovation to improve how we manage claims.”
Bottomline’s Legal-X solution helps manage the costs associated with legal expenses by ensuring that law firms are billing according to pre-approved rates and service level agreements.
