DAS UK Group, the UK’s leading legal expenses insurer, has launched a new suite of commercial products that will be available on the company’s new quote and buy web portal – DAS Connect – which goes live today.
The products, which will be immediately available on the DAS portal and Acturis platform (with SSP to follow in the coming weeks), have been tailored to the specific needs of businesses of different sizes, providing legal expenses insurance cover for issues such as employment disputes, property protection, personal injury, legal defence and tax protection. The products also provide access to a wide range of legal services and helplines that can be used as often as required including legal advice, tax advice, and counselling.
The new commercial products comprise a flexible product - Commercial Options Legal Expenses Insurance – and three packaged products - Commercial Property Owners Legal Expenses Insurance, Small Business Legal Expenses Insurance, and Trades & Professions Legal Expenses Insurance
Aimed at businesses with a turnover above £5m per annum (and up to £50m), the flexible product provides larger companies with the broadest depth of cover that can be specifically tailored to their legal risk. The packaged products, meanwhile, are for businesses with a turnover below £5m per annum and provide cover that suits a company’s individual needs, such as help with disputes relating to property lets for commercial property owners, and employee disputes and breach of contract for small businesses and trades and professions.
The DAS Connect portal, which will enable brokers to quote, buy, adjust and renew DAS products online, is a key part of the company’s E-Trade programme which will also see its product range launched onto the SSP platform for the first time and a further investment in the Acturis platform.
DAS UK will also launch a new range of personal products onto the portal, as well as SSP and Acturis, later in the year.
James Henderson, Managing Director Insurance UK & Ireland, DAS UK Group, said: “We understand the needs of our customers and brokers and are excited to announce a new range of commercial products. Whether you’re a sole trader or a property investor there is now a packaged product that suits your business, while for those who need something a little different, our Commercial Options product gives larger companies the flexibility to choose the right cover for them.”
