Drive Assist case under scrutiny
A leading law firm has requested information relating to Drive Assist and its directors.
Birmingham-based law firm Wragge, Lawrence, Graham and Co, which is acting on behalf of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, and the Insolvency Service, has written to Drive Assist creditors naming specific Drive Assist directors.
Commenting on the development, Frank Harvey, head of the National Association of Bodyshops (NAB), said, ‘It is extremely positive to see that following two years of work, the persistence we have shown on behalf of our members who suffered financially on the back of the collapse of Drive Assist is finally showing results.’
Frank continued, ‘We have been in contact with the Insolvency Service, providing them with information and evidence to assist them in building a case against the former directors of Drive Assist.’
Wragge, Lawrence, Graham and Co have asked a range of questions relating to the contract and activities of Drive Assist, and the scale of debt at the time when the company went into liquidation.
The NAB has been working tirelessly to ensure that minimal damage would be felt by its members after the claims management company went into administration in December 2012.
