Services offered in professional legal protection
By taking out professional legal protection insurance, the business manager can benefit from support at several levels in the event of a dispute.
Here are the main areas covered by this insurance:
- information and legal prevention, which allow the business manager to be advised by an expert in the event of a problem to protect the interests of the business,
- amicable conflict management, through which an expert tries to find an amicable solution in the interests of the company in the event of a conflict,
- defence of defence costs, which enables the company to obtain payment of the fees and expenses of the lawyer selected to defend the interests of the company in the context of a legal dispute.
However, if the company loses a lawsuit and is convicted of a conviction, it is important to note that the insurance will not cover the indemnities and penalties payable.
To best secure the company's legal situation against litigation with third parties (suppliers, customers, employees, etc.), the company manager must take out professional legal insurance adapted to his needs.
The scope of professional legal protection, the guarantees and the amount of coverage are set out in the insurance contract.
