ARAG joins forces with law firm Stephensons to provide ATE legal expenses insurance

South West-based legal expenses provider ARAG has strengthened its position in the North West by securing a deal with five office law firm Stephensons to provide after-the-event legal expenses insurance.

The agreement will enable Stephensons, to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ after-the-event insurance offering to its clients for specialist cases as well as clinical negligence actions. It will do this by obtaining quotes and activating cover through ARAG’s gateway administration system for the Recourse product.

ARAG’s business development and marketing director Paul Hurley said: “Stephensons is a large practice providing legal solutions the breadth of the North West and, as such, find themselves dealing with a cross section of work which requires a partner that can provide insurance to cover a wide spectrum of legal matters and this is where we come in”

Andrew Welch, Partner at Stephenson commented: “This partnership with ARAG will enable us to provide our clients with a policy for almost any type of case we transact. We find that that many of the legal expenses companies can be narrow minded in terms of the type of cases they will accept but ARAG take a more proactive approach which suits us perfectly.”
