About DAS UK Holdings Limited

UK leaders

DAS UK Holdings Limited (DAS UK Group) was formed in 1975 as a joint venture between DAS Munich and Phoenix Assurance – now part of Royal & Sun Alliance. Until that time, legal protection insurance in the UK was prohibited. In 1989, the company became wholly owned by DAS. Today, DAS is the UK’s leading specialist legal protection insurer.

As part of a global insurance group, with our own office at DAS Ireland and our own law firm we have the size and strength to offer comprehensive support, specialist teams and an impressive portfolio of products and services.
