Liability and loss adjuster The Quest Gates Partnership has broken through the £1.5 million barrier in fees generated.

The success comes just four years after the joint venture was formed by The Quest Partnership and The Gates Adjusting Partnership.

Quest Gates has grown from one office in Harrogate to a nationwide network with branches in Glasgow, Nottingham and Birmingham, and supporting group offices in Maidstone, Oxted, London and Swansea.

The partnership handles in excess of 3,000 claims a year, of which the majority relate to liability.

Partner, Martin Mathieson, said the firm's policy of maintaining a personal service by adjusters had paid real dividends.

He said: "We have been quick to respond to the needs of insurers by providing high levels of service during a period when there has been great change within the loss adjusting profession."
