Here at Lawshield, we provide legal expenses insurance products to both brokers and insurers. Our products are specially designed for your clients’ wants and needs, providing them with the cover they desire.

Legal Expenses Insurance

Lawshield have a wide range of legal expenses insurance products which range from motor, to commercial, to landlords. We’ve got a very strong understanding of the changing market, and we tailor our products to suit your client’s needs.

Our legal expenses products offer additional cover and protection to your clients, if they find themselves in need of legal help. Typically, standard motor, landlord, or commercial insurance won’t cover this in their policy, and this is where legal expenses insurance comes in.

We offer A-rated insurance products

We are proud to share that all our products are A-rated, which highlights our abilities and strengths to manage claims as well as complete them. Furthermore, we have a brilliant in-house claims management team which means that we don’t have to outsource any parts of the process.

A-rated companies typically show how stable they are financially, which in turn means they are more reliable when undertaking claims. Why are insurance ratings important? Find out by reading our ‘A-Rated Insurance: Why is Insurance Rating Important?’.

Motor Legal Expenses Cover

Motor Legal Protection is a legal expense cover which we provide. It covers drivers for more than just their standard motor insurance. The policy works seamlessly alongside their existing car insurance, but it gives them that extra protection, should they need to use it.

The policy allows us to pursue the recovery of:

  • Diminution (Loss in the value of their vehicle)
  • Loss of earnings
  • Damages for personal injury
  • Replacing lost or damaged possessions
  • Excess recovery
  • Accommodation costs
  • Treatment costs (i.e. physiotherapy)
  • Medication

This cover also includes up to £100,000 in Legal Expenses Cover, up to £100,00 Motor Prosecution Cover, Emergency Hire Cover, and European Coverage.

Landlord Legal Expenses Cover

Our Landlord Legal Expenses insurance is among the widest cover available for unexcepted legal costs. Landlord Legal Expenses cover is important as it covered landlords for more than just the basic needs which are included in their standard landlord insurance. Being a landlord can be a stressful occupation, so this premium cover gives them peace of mind.

Under our ‘Bronze Cover’ your client is covered for:

  • Legal and Tax helplines
  • Contract
  • Health & safety
  • Tax investigations
  • Nuisance
  • Property damage
  • Rent recovery
  • Property disputes

Our Commercial Legal Expenses insurance covers your clients against the costs if they need to take legal action against a third party or third parties.

It can be a great asset to business owners, as it provides cover for them if they are needing to defend themselves against any legal action being held against them or their business.

Commercial Legal Expenses insurance protects you against unexpected legal costs, including:

  • Employment disputes
  • Contractual disputes
