The partnership will also offer emergency assistance cover to residential property owners

MGAs Commercial Express and ARAG have today (1 November 2022) begun a partnership to provide legal expenses insurance cover for offices, shops, pubs, restaurants and wholesalers.

The cover will provide legal protection for these businesses, as well as emergency assistance and legal protection for residential property owners.

It will include access to digital legal services, while the residential property owner cover will provide landlords with protection for legal disputes, domestic emergencies and rent indemnity.

These schemes have been made available to Commercial Express’ broker partners in these markets – ARAG and Commercial Express are also in discussions to extend the schemes further into the market.

High-quality service

Jason Howse, corporate account manager at ARAG, said: “Commercial Express and ARAG are MGAs that share common values.

“We both work hard to innovate and deliver a high-quality service, so we’re very pleased to be working with them and helping a fellow MGA to differentiate its offering to brokers.”

Duncan Pritchard, managing director at Commercial Express, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with a name such as ARAG, a much recognised brand in the market as a symbol of quality and trust.

“The partnership will bring a host of great developments to the Commercial Express proposition, with additional services and scheme improvements throughout a selection of optional extras.”
