ARC LEGAL LAUNCHES ENHANCED SPECIALIST COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIST SCHEME WITH HOLISTIC INSURANCE

Arc Legal Assistance (Arc Legal) has been appointed by Holistic Insurance Services (Holistic Insurance) to provide an enhanced Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) policy for complementary therapists in the UK and Ireland.

The commercial LEI scheme provides broad cover for therapists’ business related activities, including legal representation costs at disciplinary hearings before a Membership Association, cover for statutory license disputes, criminal prosecution defence, tax disputes and data protection matters.

Arc Legal has also enhanced the cover available to Holistic Insurance’s customers by offering new and additional areas including contractual and employment related disputes and social media defamation coverage. In addition, it has introduced image infringement, a unique area of cover for the market, which relates to the defence of legal action resulting from an alleged breach of the provider’s terms of use for an image.

James Waddy, Commercial Development Manager at Arc Legal, said: “There is a significant interest in complementary therapies, and with over 150,000 complementary medicine therapists working in the UK1 alone this is a growing insurance market.

“Working with Holistic Insurance, we have been able to offer enhanced covers and some new areas of protection for qualified therapists. Our experience in developing and delivering niche schemes has enabled us to respond to their specific needs.”

Alison Livings Director of Holistic Insurance Services, said: “Our commitment to providing clients with valuable and relevant protection means we need partners that can understand and respond to their specific requirements. Arc Legal has demonstrated they have the skills and experience to be able to offer cover that addresses the specific professional and commercial needs of the complementary therapist market.”
