Allianz Legal Protection has launched a new legal assistance product for employers that is designed to support employees with legal issues.
The Allianz Legal Assistance product provides employees with immediate access to a solicitor who can provide support and guidance for personal legal matters ranging from purchasing property to relationship issues.
The comprehensive package also features a free online tool which enables employees to take legal health checks and reference law guides. A key aspect of the tool is the document creation facility which allows employees to generate legal documents, such as wills, at no extra cost.
The product has been designed in collaboration with DWF LLP, a leading legal business who have partnered with Allianz to provide claims handling and other additional services on a fee paying basis for any costs not covered by the product.
David Vine, business development manager commented: “We believe that for many individuals, knowing how and where to find quality legal advice can be daunting. Our product makes it easier for our customers to obtain help with legal issues at a time convenient for them.”
“Whilst we’re not offering funding for every legal expense an individual will encounter in their lives, but our partnership with DWF LLP has enabled us to be able to offer a certainty around costs and a quality solution for almost every eventuality”
