ARAG Global SE Speaker of the Board in Australia

Recently we welcomed ARAG Global SE, Speaker of the Board, Dr Renko Dirksen, from Dusseldorf Germany, who visited us for one week in Sydney to brief us on ARAG’s global direction. ARAG SE manages all assets of the ARAG Group as a family holding company.

Dr Dirksen met with many of our Australian industry partners and key clients to discuss the Australian market. Legal Expense Insurance (LEI) is an immature market in Australia. Unlike in Germany where LEI is a mature market.

Dr Dirsken is interested in the strong inflation rates worldwide, and how this is affecting the Australian market. He reassures us that ARAG’s business model offers customers effective protection for their standard of living in uncertain times.

ARAG Australia is a subsidiary of the ARAG Group which is the leading legal insurer worldwide with more than 85 years’ experience in Legal Expense Insurance. Active in 19 countries- including the USA, Canada, UK, Europe and now Australia. ARAG launched its operations in Australia in 2020, and is educating the Australian market on Legal Expense Insurance (LEI) in a relatively immature and unknown insurance type in Australia.

Legal Expense Insurance is a business and personal insurance that provides affordable access to legal advice and representation for the pursuit and defence of legal disputes when individuals or businesses are faced with unforeseen legal matters. ARAG’s founding principle is that every business and individual should be able to exercise their rights, not just those who can afford it.

Taking legal action to resolve issues can be expensive and complicated. Private Legal Expense Insurance includes cover for legal costs and expenses allowing private individuals and families to access legal services to protect their legal rights. Having access to legal advice and information without the burden of the cost provides you more choices to defend and pursue your legal rights.

ARAG also offers 3 levels of business LEI cover including Essentials cover, Comfort cover and Elite cover tailored for Sole Traders and Small Businesses such as trades, professional consultants, engineers, café owners, florists etc. Also LEI is a great benefit for large corporations to add to their staff salary packages as an Employee Benefit program.
