Our story begins when we were established as a professional services division within EFCIS; an FCA regulated credit insurance provider, to provide additional support in credit management, collections and debt recovery to over 150 credit insured clients.
We partner with a third party provider for regulated legal services and begin servicing clients both inside and outside the EFCIS client base.
Our services to credit insurance are again recognised as EFCIS becomes the first credit insurance specialist to win Credit Today awards in consecutive years.
We become an alternative business structure (ABS) regulated by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority bring the provision of regulated legal services fully in-house for the first time.
Our services are spun out in a newly incorporated limited company; EFCIS Law Limited jointly owned by the senior management team, EFCIS and our legal services partner company. EFCIS wins its first prestigious national Credit Today award.
Now with a senior management team of five directors, three of whom are practising solicitors, we begin broadening our service offering to include other areas of legal practise and professional services beyond supporting credit insurance.
After strong growth over a sustained period which sees our turnover and profitability increase the senior management team buys out EFCIS and our former legal services provider. The business is re-branded as Axis Professional Services and brand owner for Simply Litigation, Axis TradePay, Axis AccountSure, Key2 Conveyancing and Separ8
