Disagreements with staff, suppliers, or clients can occur and could cost your business thousands of pounds in legal fees. In the circumstance that someone wants to make legal a claim against you, legal expenses insurance will protect your business from the cost of the dispute and provide access to critical advice. In the event you wish to make a claim against someone else, you'll also receive cover against legal costs and advice.

Legal expenses insurance differs from public liability and employers liability, providing additional protection for your business. Legal issues that require professional support or legal advice won't be usually be covered under the standard terms of other insurance policies.
