ARAG opens for business nationwide offering commercial legal for programs and stand-alone policies

Toronto, ON (July 5, 2018) – ARAG Services Corporation has extended its full range of commercial and personal legal expense insurance products to the whole of Canada.

The specialist MGA, which launched in 2016, is now offering legal protection solutions to brokers and other insurance intermediaries throughout the country, for their personal, commercial and landlord clients.

 “We always planned to make our range of products available throughout Canada” comments CEO Jo-Anne MacDonald. “But I’m particularly pleased that we’ve been able to reach this point so quickly, thanks to the incredible response we’ve had from brokers.”

“Globally, ARAG is known as a highly innovative and flexible partner to work with, and we have instilled that same ethos here in Canada. So, whether brokers are looking for the benefits offered by a program or are looking for stand-alone policies for specific commercial clients, we should be able to help.”

 “As the market is maturing,” adds Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Katherine (McLeod) Ferrante. “Brokers are becoming more discerning about both the legal expense products they offer to clients as well as the service they get.”

“Our Business Legal Solutions policies have no deductibles, there is no waiting period for claims on standard employment issues nor contract disputes, and our compliance and regulation cover includes disciplinary hearings.  The policy also addresses commercial vehicle cover.”

“Innovation isn’t simply about how we put the product together, it’s how we train our brokers to promote this new level of risk management. We work with our client to truly understand the nuances of the ARAG Legal Expense Insurance cover.”
