Our mission

We’ll go further to understand our customers’ needs, supporting them through continuous investment in our people and processes as we aspire to be a top-three provider of market leading legal expenses insurance, assistance and claims services.

Established in 1984, MSL is an independently owned business with over 30 years experience in legal expenses, assistance and claims services. MSL is a trading name of MSL Legal Expenses Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the FCA.

Our products are sold solely through brokers, intermediaries and insurers. We are unable to offer these products for direct sale to the general public.

MSL is part of Drive Further, an independent collection of companies, which also includes MSL Vehicle Solutions, Financial & Legal Insurance and Opsium.

Drive Further is a family owned collective, built upon the strong foundation left by David Garner, who initially rented out his own Renault 5 to found the business in 1984. Now owned by his son, Nick Garner, the companies provide a wide range of services to brokers, intermediaries, SMEs, insurers, solicitors and their customers.
