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.
