Legal Expenses

Legal Expenses cover is provided as an extension to a number of policies and is designed to protect you and your business against the cost of taking legal action should a situation arise where it is needed.

Standalone legal expenses insurance is a policy that is designed to meet the needs of small and medium sized businesses (SME) who employ staff but have limited, or no in-house legal expertise. It’s designed to help businesses obtain legal advice as early as possible, ideally before problems arise, such as an employment tribunal or a contract dispute. It will also provide cover for legal representation and the expense of taking the matter to court.

  • What’s typically covered?
  • Employment disputes
  • Compensation awards
  • Legal defence
  • Property protection
  • Contract disputes
All businesses are unique so to make sure you’re covered, get in touch with our team of experts.
