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.
- A 24 hour, 365 day legal helpline.
- Optional employment and contractual dispute cover
- Tax protection
- Legal defence
Legal expenses cover also helps in the following:
- Legal advice service
- Tax advice service

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?
