Based on ARAG’s Essential Business Legal Solutions policy, the cover includes indemnity against the legal costs of common problems such as employment disputes and tax investigations, as well as optional contract and debt recovery cover that includes construction disputes.
ARAG is also providing a similar policy for DUAL Olivia’s commercial clients outside the construction industry.
Commenting on the new arrangement, DUAL Oliva UK Commercial Director, Craig Miller said:
“Legal protection is important cover for businesses in the construction industry, but also a significant opportunity for us to differentiate. ARAG has built a product for our clients that provides wide cover and a great range of benefits.
While the sector has been incredibly busy, that heightens some risks and these are obviously very uncertain times, so we have worked with ARAG to secure the best possible protection for our clients in construction and other industries.”
The policy also includes ARAG’s crisis communications and ‘executive suite’ of covers that offer personal protection from some key risks for the principal officers in a business, as well as access to telephone legal and tax advice and online legal document building tools.
ARAG’s UK Sales Manager, Matt Warren, added:
“We understand the need to offer something different to clients, to stand out in a crowded marketplace and add real value to a proposition.
ARAG prides itself on being the specialist for specialists, so we work very hard at tailoring our products to meet the needs of specific businesses, to ensure they get the legal protection that really fits the dynamics and risks of their industry.”
