Legal Protection Group launches in Ireland

by Sheena Court | Tue 23, Jan 2018 | News

Legal Protection Group, the specialist Legal Protection Insurance MGA, has launched in Ireland as a joint venture between Legal Protection Group UK and the senior team behind the wholesale division of O’Driscoll O’Neil DAC.

Legal Protection Group was formed by a group of well-known legal protection insurance professionals, who shared a vision of how a legal protection company can and should operate. Having launched successfully in the UK in October 2016, the group has partnered with O’Driscoll O’Neil to now bring the benefits of this fresh approach to the Irish market.

Commenting on the launch of Legal Protection Group Ireland, Legal Protection Group’s Managing Director Martin Rowan said, “There is a huge opportunity for growth within the Irish Legal Protection market and our objective is to help brokers realise this untapped potential. Until now, there has effectively been only one insurer operating in this sector, but now there is a choice of provider and our research shows very clearly that this new choice will be warmly welcomed by the market.”

Working closely with the senior team at O’Driscoll O’Neil, the new products have been designed and developed specifically for the Irish market. We believe that our policies are more flexible and bespoke than perhaps you or your clients are used to. The updated and enhanced covers are underwritten by Inter Hannover, with an AA- security rating, and supported by local claims-handling and telephone legal advice services.

In designing our product range, we have listened carefully to the market and we have already successfully started operations in Ireland through a quiet soft-launch at the beginning of January

The Legal Protection Group Ireland products include:

  • Commercial Legal Protection;
  • Group and Affinity Protection;
  • Family legal Protection; and
  • Motor Legal Protection.

Legal Protection Group Ireland is also launching a Commercial & Civil Litigation Policy, which provides cover of up to €2.0 million against the risk of an adverse costs award in an unsuccessful legal action.

Cover is available from today and we’re sure you will be pleased with the choice, flexibility and the price we can offer.

Niall O’Driscoll, Managing Director of O’Driscoll O’Neil, said “We are excited to be able to offer choice to the consumer in a market where it is has been lacking thus far. Legal Protection Group are the ideal partner for us and we look forward to working with them for many years.”
