An online portal has been launched providing consumers with direct access to financial advisers.
Legalandfinancial100.co.uk has been launched by Yorkshire-based corporate lawyer, Tim MacLean, and is designed to match financial and legal experts with the needs of individuals and business clients.
The website provides free direct access to lawyers and financial specialists who will respond to user enquiries with details of their experience, location, their firm and charge out rates. This will allow potential clients to gain more information before incurring the costs of meeting with lawyers and financial professionals, including advisers.
The portal gives users access to 100 legal and 100 financial expert 'members' in a variety of specialisms of law and finance throughout Yorkshire and the Humber.
"The aim of LegalandFinancial100.co.uk is to act as an exclusive 'one stop shop' for people seeking legal and financial advice, bridging the gap between professionals and potential clients by helping people to find the most qualified specialists in the field they require," says MacLean.
"Too often, people use the same legal firm or financial advisers, regardless of the specific nature of the work they require. We are providing a very confidential and private way for individuals to easily identify, and get direct access to; the most qualified and experienced experts who can deal with their enquiry."
