Commercial Legal Expenses Insurance Could your Club, Recognised Training Centre or Affiliated Organisation benefit from this additional cover?
Despite having rigorous risk management practices, even the most prepared Sailing Club, Recognised Training Centre or Affiliated Organisation can find themselves suffering from the consequences of a legal dispute. Dealing with litigation problems certainly isn't cheap whether it be hefty fines and legal representation costs or excess time spent dealing with such matters. This may leave organisations with a reduced bank balance and often with a tarnished reputation.
Gallagher are pleased to advise that Commercial Legal Expenses cover can help protect your organisation in these circumstances and set you on the road to recovery.
