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
