What is Commercial Legal Protection Insurance?

Legal Expenses incurred during litigation can run into thousands of pounds. The purchase of Legal Expenses insurance, in its two major forms; 'before-the-event' and 'after-the-event', can help cushion these huge costs, by covering the policy holder's legal expenses.

There are specific forms of Legal Protection Insurance that indemnify the policy holder against medical malpractice, errors and omissions and can even extend to Directors' and Officers' liability. 

A Legal Protection Insurance policy can provide an affordable and convenient alternative meeting legal costs directly from cashflow.

Generally, the fees incurred from consultation with solicitors, services of barristers and expert witnesses, will be covered under the policy. In addition, fees and settlements to other parties may also be covered.

This Legal Protection Insurance policy covers you for the legal expenses, subject to terms and conditions, incurred in respect of insured events including, but not limited to:

  • Employment disputes
  • Compensation awards
  • Property protection
  • Bodily injury
  • Tax disputes including full or aspect enquiries, employers’ compliance and VAT investigations

The policy also provides a 24-hour helpline and access to a broad range of information at

Please note, Commercial Legal Protection Insurance has an excess of £200.
