ALPS Enhances Commercial Legal Expenses Insurance

Auto Legal Protection Services (ALPS), one of the UK’s leading providers of motor claims solutions, legal expenses and additional products, has enhanced its Commercial Legal Expenses insurance cover so that it now caters for businesses of up to £10 million turnover (previously £5 million). It has also introduced a new insurance scheme called Commercial Complete, which also includes Debt Recovery cover.

ALPS Commercial Legal Expenses, which was first launched in 2012, provides a wide range of legal expenses cover for businesses. Unlike other policies in the market, it is rated purely on the turnover of the business and includes Contract Dispute with no cap as standard.  ALPS can also now supply bespoke quotations for businesses with a turnover in excess of £10 million.

Matt Field, Sales and Marketing Director of ALPS, comments: “With UK SMEs facing late payments worth more than £40 billion1, debt recovery is a big issue for our brokers’ commercial clients. Whilst many insurers offer the option of Commercial Legal Expenses cover within the core policy, the feedback from many of our supporting brokers is that this does not provide adequate protection for their clients and excludes vital heads of cover such as Contract Disputes and Debt Recovery, which we’ve now added.”

Other areas of cover under ALPS’ policy include: Employment Disputes, Property Protection, License and Data Protection, Jury Service Expenses, Legal Expenses and Tax Investigation. ALPS also offers a 24-hour helpline for support and advice as well as marketing support for brokers. All policy management can be carried out via ALPS award-winning secure web portal – Communic8.
