What happens if the matter requires further representation 

It is anticipated that most legal problems will be resolved within the 30 minute

telephone conversation between the Insured and the legal practitioner.


In the event the matter requires legal action to resolve and cover is available under the LEXi policy, the legal practitioner will advise us. At this stage the Insured will be required to complete a claim form (found here). You can email the claim form to legalexpenses@proclaim.com .Upon receipt and acceptance of the claim, the legal practitioner who provided the initial advice through our exclusive call-back service (or another relevant legal practitioner from that firm), will be appointed to represent the insured. The legal fees (up to the limit of indemnity and less the policy excess) will be paid by us. When claiming under the LEXi policy it is compulsory for the matter to be handled by the legal practitioner appointed by us.


In the event the matter requires legal action to resolve, and the matter falls outside the scope of the LEXi policy, the legal practitioner will offer their on-going services at significantly discounted fees which we have negotiated exclusively for LEXi policy holders.
