What is Legal Expenses Insurance?

legal expenses insuranceA Legal Expenses Insurance policy is designed to protect your business in the event of a legal dispute. It covers all the costs involved with solicitors, court proceedings and in some cases even the damages that are paid out to any claimants.

Due to the specific areas that this type of policy covers, it is sometimes referred to as Professional Fees Insurance as it can also be extended to cover the fees of required professionals such as accountants. 

This type of insurance originally became popular in Europe before it became part of the UK's insurance portfolio. Prepaid commercial legal expenses insurance is essentially a UK innovation. 

How does it work?

In most cases, a legal expenses insurance policy needs to be taken out before the event (BTE) occurs to protect against any unforeseen circumstances that may happen in the future. After the event (ATE) cover is still available to cover costs incurred from solicitors and other professionals in the event of a failed case.

Policies of this type can help your business with costs associated with:

  • Solicitors
  • Accountants
  • Court Proceedings
  • Damages or compensation payouts

Why is it important?

The main reason to take out suitable Legal Expenses Insurance is to cover you if you have to pay any costs associated with losing a court case as well as any solicitor fees that you may incur.

A specialist legal expenses policy can save your business from the hassle of a lengthy and expensive legal dispute. Potential costs in this kind of area are always a bit of an unknown, and valuable management time can be taken away in dealing with a problem such as this. Legal Expenses insurance will guarantee you are protected in this eventuality.
