It is expected ARAG will provide thousands of policies annually as a result of the deal.

Hugh James will use tailored versions of ARAG’s Recourse Options and Recourse Complete products to insure costs risks in the firm’s clinical negligence, industrial disease and other personal injury cases, as well as for data protection, environmental and various other non-personal injury claims.

Stephen Webber, divisional head, individual client services at Hugh James, said: “Financial security and proven products are vital to ensure that, first and foremost our clients, but also our firm remain properly protected. ARAG clearly ticks all of the boxes and has a reputation for delivering great service, so we are looking forward to building a successful partnership with them.”

The deal comes after a long-running tender process and negotiation. ARAG's Mike Knight added: “Putting together a matrix of solutions to meet the wide-ranging needs of such a large and successful law firm is always going to be a challenge. So, we are very pleased that we have been able to build a partnership that will help thousands of the firm’s clients.”
