Pogust Goodhead is on the cutting edge of the evolving legal industry. The UK legal system is evolving, making way for increasing numbers of claims to be trialled in court and more consumers compensated for the wrongdoings of big corporates. The firm is leading the charge, developing an optimised, automated and technology-driven process, including Shieldpay’s solution, that will ensure all affected are not only granted their deserved compensation but that they receive it quickly, with minimal disruption and maximum security.
Shieldpay offers a comprehensive payout solution for distributing compensation funds, facilitated through our litigation solution. For Pogust Goodhead’s class action cases, there are three key stages to paying out compensation awards:1) Shieldpay conducts due diligence and real-time bank account verification checks on the claimants, facilitated by our open banking partner DirectID.
Money held in-line with the specifications set out by SRA, including accurate client records and robust reconciliation.
Pogust Goodhead is an innovative and forward-thinking law firm with a strong belief that the industry must be adopting new technologies to constantly improve the efficiency of legal services, ultimately delivering an enhanced customer experience. For a firm that represents vast numbers of customers, their ability to deliver work quickly, accurately and securely is critical.
For claimants, a bank transfer is a simple way to gain access to their entitled compensation. The end recipient benefits from a smoother and much faster payment journey. In the words of a claimant from a recent 5-star Trustpilot review:
“[This was] one of the easiest, fastest and most secure transactions I have completed online.”
As the final step in the litigation procedure for the claimant, this process greatly affects client satisfaction and can shift perceptions and the reputation of the law firm. With Shieldpay’s ‘excellent’ scoring on online review platforms and overwhelmingly positive feedback from claimants, this is not a concern for Pogust Goodhead.
