Our mission at ARAG Services Corporation is to be the SMART choice of quality legal solutions for all Canadians, regardless of financial standing. As a Legal Expense Insurance Managing General Agent (MGA), our objective to promote access to justice is deeply rooted in our founder, Heinrich Fassbender’s, philosophy of enabling everyone to assert their legal rights and commitment to equal opportunities for all.
As a company that was founded over 80 years ago in Germany, our Canadian division has access to well-established systems and resources, which are easily adapted to the Canadian market place, regulations, and specific client needs, alike.
Specifically, our clients receive unlimited access to our 24/7 helpline to ask legal advisors any questions about Canadian business law. One short call to a lawyer can often prevent a small issue from turning into a large and expensive situation. If legal action is necessary, ARAG’s insurance policy is there to cover costs, including legal fees, disbursements, court costs, expert witnesses fees as well as adverse costs should the courts order the other party’s legal fees be paid you yourself or your client.
“The concept of insured legal protection is still relatively young in our country, but the market is growing very quickly and has such huge potential,” notes ARAG Canada CEO, Jo-Anne MacDonald. With our Toronto head office, as well as a Quebec operation, we aim to serve all of Canada and to use our space as both a symbol and catalyst for the footprint we are carving out in the Canadian marketplace.
