Insurer ups legal ante on ML cover

ACE Insurance has launched a beefed-up new management liability policy, offering insureds free legal advice as part of the standard cover.

As well as broadened coverage, the Elite Plus policy offers clients two free hours of legal advice from national law firm Moray & Agnew per policy period.

ACE Australia President John French says the product responds to a growing awareness within small- and medium-sized businesses for management liability cover.

“Brokers are also looking for management liability products that offer broad protection to their clients,” he says.

“Claims can sometimes be a stressful experience for clients, so we are delighted to offer the new legal helpline.”
