Commercial legal expenses insurance

Protect your business clients from the costs of unforeseen legal disputes with commercial legal expenses insurance.

Legal expenses cover for business owners

We understand that your clients work hard to keep their businesses running smoothly and expect the same from their insurance policies and providers.

Unexpected legal disputes can be daunting and stressful for any business. Not all businesses, however, can afford to keep an in-house legal team on their payroll.

That’s where DAS commercial legal expenses insurance could prove to be a useful addition to your client’s business insurance.

And because it can be more affordable than using high street law firms, it makes legal representation accessible for every business…whatever their size.

What’s typically covered?

If your clients find themselves in a legal dispute we can offer legal advice and, where applicable, provide cover for legal costs. Some typical examples of the types of situation where our products could help include:

  • An employment dispute with an employee or ex-employee;
  • Breach of a contract relating to the purchase or sale of goods or services;
  • Debt recovery following the provision of goods or services.

Your clients can also take advantage of:

What isn’t covered?

Typical exclusions may include:

  • Claims which do not arise directly in connection with the insured business.
  • Legal problems that start before the date cover begins.
  • Civil cases where the lawyer we appoint does not believe the case is more likely than not to win.
  • Costs incurred without our expressed acceptance.

Flexible cover to suit your client’s needs

We have products offering various levels of cover meaning you can easily find an option that works for you and your client. If you are interested in discussing which of these products would be best for your clients, please get in touch.
