Underwriter appoints DAS for all legal expenses cover

Commercial insurance underwriting specialist APC has selected legal expenses insurer DAS Legal Expenses Insurance following a rigorous tendering process.

DAS will underwrite all LEI cover for new APC products with immediate effect and existing products at renewal. DAS will also provide further support for APC via an online legal advice service for APC clients.

APC selected DAS after a careful selection process to ensure clients have access to market-leading cover which is competitively priced.

APC underwriting director Ian Russell said: “Legal expenses insurance is often referred to as a ‘bolt-on’ cover and isn’t always given the recognition it deserves. It is however an extremely important component of the overall protection that SMEs and larger businesses need. We are delighted to be able to provide this by partnering with DAS as a highly experienced specialist, which in the end was the compelling choice offering better cover, services and rates.”

Darren Weekes of DAS said: “We are extremely pleased to have secured the account of APC as one of the best regarded MGA’s in the UK. APC’s requirement to provide access to quality cover that is also good value is something DAS has an extremely keen focus on and we are delighted to have been selected.”
