Legal Expense Insurance helps business owners protect their businesses from litigation by paying for a legal defence (and even free legal advice) when they need it.

As a business owner your focus is on running and growing your business. It’s nearly impossible to manage everything and keep up to date on changes in legislation, let alone understanding how each one affects your business. And that’s just the beginning.

There are employee disputes, health and safety concerns, licensing issues and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Legal Expense Insurance will protect your business from the cost of potential legal disputes.

You get coverage up to $100,000 per claim – $500,000 per year.

Even better, policyholders have access to the invaluable Legal Advice Helpline – access to qualified advice on any legal matter.
