Meet the ‘Matthews’: a video introduction to the two new directors at Temple Legal Protection

At the end of last year Matthew Pascall and Matthew Best joined to the Temple board of directors. In this 5-minute video they share their views on their new roles including the priorities and challenges they face.

Their skills are complimentary. Before taking on their new roles Matthew Pascall had been a barrister for over 30 years and Matthew Best an underwriter with Temple for nearly 12 years. Both have long-term commitment to Temple’s core values and culture of delivering long-lasting business relationships with innovative ATE insurance and disbursement funding that deliver best value for Temple’s partner law firms.

When asked about their respective appointments, Matthew Best commented “Working with my team over the next 12 months, I’m looking forward to building even stronger relationships with our existing coverholders. This includes working collaboratively with them on challenges such as the forthcoming CPR changes – and always keeping things straightforward – so that Temple continues to be a truly trusted insurance partner”

On his appointment, Matthew Pascall commented “I’m looking forward to getting to know more about the wider aspects of the business; what we do, and indeed what we can do better – with the aim of further building our reputation for reliability. Again, trust is a key theme – our partner solicitors depend on us, especially at difficult moments in a case. Flexibility is another commitment from Temple – commercial litigators should look out for bespoke policies for specific sectors, customer firms or indeed a particular case.”
