DAS Powering Partnerships. - How understanding legal risks can help you connect with customers


At DAS, we understand that many customers are facing uncertain times. The growing burden of regulation, rising inflation, supply chain issues and a difficult employment market have caused huge stresses for small businesses, landlords and consumers alike. We want to equip customers with the tools to rise to these challenges.

DAS is built around partnerships. We work closely with our distribution partners to offer you access to deep legal-sector knowledge that helps you understand the risks your customers face. Increasingly those risks are not just property or liability, but legal and regulatory and our products and services are designed to meet these needs. Our underwriting, product and marketing expertise can help you maximise the value in this area for your customers.

Jay Prosser, Head of Partnerships and New Business at DAS, says: “Today, business owners are looking for solutions that support them through difficult times, help their businesses grow, and mitigate ever[1]increasing business risks. Insurers and brokers who partner with DAS are able to put together a compelling package of value-added services that will help them deepen their relationships with their customers.”

At the heart of this has always been our Before the Event (BTE) insurance products, which include unlimited access to 24/7 legal advice. So, whether your client is facing a serious legal issue or just wants to check something with a solicitor, they can consult with a team of legal experts whenever they need to.

Our powerful online services DAS Businesslaw & DAS Householdlaw are designed to help businesses and consumers to achieve their everyday objectives. They cover diverse topics such as employment, HR, contracts, landlords and tenants, Health and Safety, late payers, and much more. Our products also offer access to a confidential counselling service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for your clients and members of their immediate family.

At BIBA, our After the Event (ATE) legal expenses insurance experts will also be in attendance. So, for those customers without BTE coverage, find out how an ATE Policy can help them with cover for a range of matters including civil litigation, insolvency, clinical negligence, and personal injury cases.
