Why you need Commercial Legal Expenses Insurance
You insure your business against catastrophes such as fire, flood and theft but are you protected against the threat and often crippling high cost of litigation? In an increasingly litigious and legislated commercial environment, it can be hard to keep up to date with all the changes affecting a business. Few companies can afford the luxury of an in-house lawyer and many do not have dedicated HR personnel specialising in employment law. With legal expenses insurance, you get comprehensive cover for your business, with the benefits of legal advice and representation without the financial burden.
We believe that commercial legal expenses cover is a ‘must have’ for any business. The low cost of these policies coupled with the wide cover benefits means that these policies make good business sense.
We provide Commercial Legal Expenses Insurance policies for businesses with annual wagerolls up to £5,000,000 that are Underwritten by DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Limited.
