ATLAS Settlement Group throws in the towel
Industry sources report that Atlas Settlement Group has disbanded their internal MSA unit to focus on structured settlements. They will be referring any new cases to an unspecified law firm.
Their foray into the MSA business began around 2006 using Burns, White and Hickton as their back office. BWH would do the actual MSA and Atlas would brand the work product as their own.
Sometime around 2008 they decided to move their operations “in house” by hiring a couple of MSA writers. However, the MSA business is a lot trickier than it looks from the outside and simply having a few people with MSCC behind their name doesn’t really do the trick anymore.
Ringler MSA and the new offering by IFSS (owner of SFA, EPS, Millenium) Providio MSA should take a lesson from Atlas. Stick to what you know because you are 10 years behind the rest of the industry.
