Legal expenses insurers Angel Assistance and Countrywide Assistance have set up a joint support team for brokers.

Members of the team will be hitting the road to meet brokers seeking advice related to product sales including marketing, claims handling and staff training. Initially the team will number six but is likely to expand later this year.

Angel, located near Bath, and Countrywide in Peterborough, are both part of the Helphire Group.

Sussanne Chambers, Angel's sales director said, the sales support team will be working to discover brokers' real needs and undertake to provide them.
