Access Legal from Shoosmiths is to help the 50,000-strong Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) become the UK's leading consumer organisation for bikers, as the consumer legal services provider announces it has teamed-up with MAG to offer free legal advice to its members.

Comprising volunteers, MAG lobbies to protect motorcycling from legislation it believes threatens riders' pleasure; while its charitable arm - The MAG Foundation - promotes motorcycling through research, representation and collaboration.

Access legal from Shoosmiths is providing a dedicated 24/7 legal helpline to MAG members, their friends and family, offering free legal advice on a range of issues, including road traffic accidents.

Then, for every personal injury instruction received via MAG, Access Legal from Shoosmiths will donate £100 to the Foundation, while £50 will be donated for conveyancing instructions, £25 for motor defence, and £15 for wills.

Partner and head of consumer services at Access Legal, Judith Dorkins said: "Not only are we boosting funds for a worthwhile cause, we're also helping MAG members pursue their rights, have easy access to justice, understand the legal process, and make informed decisions.

"It's great example of our commitment to investing in the community."

MAG general secretary Nich Brown said: "MAG members know their right to ride is one of the most important things in life. Every day we're asked for advice on how to fight injustices by riders who've had a raw deal. This partnership means our members can quickly find expert legal advice of all kinds whenever they need it."
