What is legal expenses insurance?

Legal expenses insurance covers the legal costs of a dispute, regardless of whether the case is brought by or against the policyholder.

It’s not designed to pay the policyholder damages they are trying to recover – but the cost to bring the action to court.

Who do we cover?

Legal protection is particularly useful for businesses with employees, but who don’t have legal expertise in-house. To work out if it’s for you, ask yourself these questions?

  • Have I not pursued something because of cost?
  • Who do I turn to if I need legal advice?
  • Can my business afford to pay for an employment dispute, what if it couldn’t?
  • What is the cost to protect me?
