Inflexion Private Equity takes stake in National Accident Helpline

Inflexion Private Equity today announces that it has taken a stake in National Accident Helpline (“NAH”), the UK’s leading legal services marketing company specialising in personal injury cases, investing alongside the incumbent equity provider LDC, and a debt package from Yorkshire Bank.

Founded in 1993 and based in Kettering, NAH has grown to be the largest referral source for personal injury claims in the UK, gaining cases through major response-driven advertising campaigns primarily on television and a growing internet presence. Calls generated are screened by its team of law graduates, who then refer the appropriate customer enquiries to its 90-strong panel of approved solicitor firms. NAH is the clear market leader in its field with a highly recognisable, respected brand and an excellent reputation with the legal profession.

LDC has sold down part of its investment in NAH through this transaction. Inflexion will, therefore, be working alongside LDC and the existing management team to provide capital and support for the next stage of the company’s growth.

Simon Turner, Managing Partner of Inflexion Private Equity commented: “NAH operates in an interesting market and has achieved outstanding growth in the past few years to become the best practice operator and market leader in the sector. We are excited to be backing the experienced management team and working with LDC during this key phase of the company’s development and look forward to playing a central part in its future growth”.
