AND DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH WRIGHT INSURANCE BROKERS
Arc Legal Assistance (Arc Legal) has launched, what is believed to be, the first dedicated haulage legal expenses product in Ireland, as part of new schemes and a distribution deal with Wright Insurance Brokers.
This is the first time Arc Legal has provided cover to the haulage sector in Ireland. As part of the partnership with Wright Insurance Brokers, hauliers will have access to a product specifically tailored to their needs.
The product includes extended motoring prosecutions legal cover for overloading, insecure loads and vehicles in a dangerous condition, cover for legal costs arising from any dispute with a supplier over the service or maintenance of a vehicle or a customer about a contract for the supply of goods or services including continental carrier liability disputes, and adviser’s costs to provide representation at a Tribunal of Inquiry for matters related to the customers’ Operators License.
Tony Wright of Wright Insurance Brokers, said: “Arc Legal’s proven approach to developing products that meet the needs of specific business sectors was an important factor in us working with them to address a real gap in the haulage insurance market in Ireland.
“We were particularly impressed with Arc Legal’s ability to deliver emergency legal assistance for our haulage customers both locally and across the continent.
“It is clear Arc Legal has the appetite to build on the development of this product and extend its reach across broader market. We are already looking at wider distribution opportunities.”
Richard Finan, Director of Arc Legal said: “Existing standard motor ULR and commercial legal expenses products are unable to address the specific needs of hauliers. We were able to identify a clear gap in protection, and in partnership with Tony and his team, develop a dedicated legal expenses cover for haulage firms in Ireland with continental coverage.
“We are very excited at the prospects for building on this initial scheme and to working with Wright Insurance Brokers to expand our product and distribution opportunities.”
Wright Insurance Brokers will also distribute their Haulage policy via other Brokers.
