Legal Expenses Insurance

Legal Expenses insurance provides an indemnity to an insured in respect of defence costs they may occur as a result of any civil proceedings brought against them by a third party.

This can include cover for Contract Disputes, Employment Disputes, Legal Defence and Tax Protection.

Many insurers provide a legal telephone helpline to charities giving access to free legal advice. Insurers often require organisations to ring the helpline number as soon as a potential incident is highlighted and to follow the advice that's given.
