With Legal Advice PLUS, we support you in all aspects of Swiss law: our experts answer your questions quickly and in language you can understand.
Is your neighbor threatening to press charges over noise? Have you been fired without notice? Legal disputes can often arise out of the blue. When they do, Legal Advice PLUS makes sure that good advice doesn’t cost a fortune: our experts explain the legal situation and discuss your options and the risks and opportunities involved.
This insurance offers you three hours of legal advice a year on all issues relating to Swiss law – with no deductible. Want to extend your insurance coverage? Choose other modules from our legal protection insurance for private individuals to complement Legal Advice PLUS.
