In the thirty years that you’ve been involved with DAS and developing the UK legal expenses market what have been the major milestones?

Paul Asplin writes...

The breakthrough for legal expenses insurance in the UK came in the introduction of the ULR scheme, which we developed at DAS. The Government then helped us out by introducing new employment laws (they’ve never stopped) which fuelled the demand for commercial cover, and then they created the market for ATE insurance. By decade, the major milestones have been: 1970’s – DAS established, the vision begins. 1980’s – the add-on ULR scheme is invented. 1990’s – demand for commercial employment cover soars. 2000’s – ATE invented.
