Free legal disputes service from Allianz Commercial

Allianz Commercial is offering a free legal disputes service to all of its SME policyholders.

The service, which is being provided in conjunction with Allianz Legal Protection, aims to assist SME customers with contract and professional negligence disputes.

It offers a free legal assessment of any dispute by a commercial solicitor and, if the the case has merit, the solicitor will go on to act on a “no win, no fee” basis.

Firms will also be offered “After The Event” legal expenses insurance with Allianz Legal Protection to cover the costs of disbursements and a defendant’s costs, should the case be unsuccessful.

Allianz Legal Protection spokesman, Peter Dobie, comments: “Where the customer has a valid case and is concerned about the potential costs involved in litigation, this service can mean the difference between just surviving and thriving.”

He adds: “Firms can make well-informed decisions about whether to take legal action, confident that they have a knowledgeable professional team behind them, leaving them to continue the important job of running their business without disruption.”

Allianz Commercial head of SME, affinity and broker markets, David Martin, sums up: “This unique service will provide SMEs with the confidence to make important commercial decisions in the knowledge that they are covered by an insurer of financial strength and security – making us a trusted partner for our customers.”
