DAS UK Group Agrees Significant New Legal & General Home Insurance Deal

DAS UK Group has signed a major partnership deal to provide personal legal expenses insurance for Legal & General’s home insurance policies.

The three year deal will see DAS provide legal expenses insurance products, as well as legal helpline services for home and pet insurance policy holders, to Legal & General which is the UK’s seventh largest provider of home insurance with over 1.6m policy holders.

The deal strengthens the relationship between the two organisations and will enable them to work more closely to innovate, explore new distribution channels and build new products for emerging markets. It also immediately makes Legal & General one of DAS's top five business partners.

Our organisations have strategic ambitions that overlap whereby we both share the same desire to innovate, and improve the overall market offering available to customers.
