Commercial Legal Protection

What is commercial legal protection?

Commercial legal protection, also known simply as legal protection, is a type of insurance that provides cover from any legal action that may be taken against you and your business.

If you are ever required to defend yourself against legal proceedings, this type of policy will cover the costs and court expenses that may be incurred (these can often be unexpectedly high). It will also cover any compensation awarded as a result of the court proceedings.

Why is it important?

Commercial legal protection is regarded by many as standard good practice in today’s modern litigious environment. Legal action and court cases, particularly for small businesses, can be costly. So it is essential for smaller establishments, especially those specialising in the childcare industry, to take steps to protect themselves against any legal issues that may be brought against them.
