Legal Expenses Insurance

Litigation can pose an unexpected but potentially massive expense for  businesses. Flexible legal expenses insurance from AmTrust helps protect against that risk. 

Litigation is expensive, with significant costs including solicitors, barristers, court fees, expert witnesses, etc. In some cases, the cost of a legal case could seriously jeopardise an individual's personal finances or the viability of a small business. That's why AmTrust International's legal expenses coverage offers peace of mind to individuals and business entities looking to lessen their exposure to the financial toll that litigation can take.
