Allianz offers free legal line for Commercial customers


With businesses adapting to a post-lockdown environment, Allianz is offering its commercial insurance customers access to its legal advice line until the end of the third quarter.

Whether Allianz Commercial policyholders have Legal Expenses cover in place or not, they will be able to call Lawphone until 30 September 2021, which currently coincides with the end of the government’s furlough scheme.

The 24/7 telephone service can provide guidance on any business-related legal matter, from employment law to debt recovery and property disputes, as well as advice on the ever-changing legislation related to Covid-19.

Sarah Mallaby, director of broker markets at Allianz Insurance said:

“The last 12 months have been extremely challenging for some of our policyholders and they have been forced to quickly make changes to their businesses in order to adjust to the dynamic circumstances. Unfortunately, due to the introduction of new Covid-related laws and regulations, some policyholders may now lack clarity of their legal position and could unknowingly find themselves legally compromised.

“To help protect them, we'll be offering them legal advice at no additional cost, via Lawphone, from now until 30 September 2021.”

Legal Expenses cover, and therefore access to Lawphone, is included as standard in Allianz’s core SME proposition and is an optional cover within the Mid-Corporate suite of products. Access to Lawphone is extended to commercial customers who don’t have Legal Expenses cover in place, with the exception of engineering inspection policyholders.

Allianz’s Covid-19 Hub is kept up-to-date with the latest information on Covid-19 and provides practicable advice for business owners as to how they can safely reopen their businesses and protect their staff as we gradually come out of lockdown.
