How advisory legal protection works


Real-life example

Plaster AG would like to enter into a new partnership with a supplier. Before signing the agreement, Plaster AG asks Fortuna to check it. Fortuna provides the company with important information about the contents of the agreement and helps it take the next steps.


Your cover begins after a waiting period of 60 days from the date the contract begins. The insurance covers legal cases that occur during the contract term and are reported to Fortuna during that period. When the contract comes to an end, the insurance is renewed automatically for one year at a time unless cancelled one month beforehand.

Advisory legal protection has a maximum insured amount of CHF 3,000 per year of insurance and provides up to 15 hours of consultation.

Cover applies throughout Switzerland.

Your company and the day-to-day operations of the co-insured companies and subsidiaries listed in your policy. 

The premium is based on your company’s operations, revenue, total payroll and number of employees.
