About the company

Based on the idea of helping consumers achieve a greater degree of security when purchasing goods and services, we established a new Norwegian insurance company specialising in legal assistance.

HELP is the only insurance company in Norway that is specialized in legal insurance. Legal insurance is a new way to offer legal aid. HELP Forsikring AS acquired a license from the Norwegian Ministry of Finance in October 2005 and opened its doors for business on 1 December 2005. We have 140 employees in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen. More than 400.000 people are insured by the company.

Owners

The company has from the start been owned by private and larger financial shareholders: ARAG  (German), Storebrand Livsforsikring AS and Ferd AS . From 2013, ARAG, a long term majority owner, became the sole shareholder of HELP Forsikring. As an insurance company, we are subject to supervision by the Norwegian Financial Authority, which conducts supervision of all our financial undertakings.

Business idea

We aim to make legal services more readily available for the private market through wide distribution of our legal insurance products.

Mission

HELP enables every citizen to assert their legal rights.

Vision

We make legal services available for everybody.

Legal power house

HELP is the no. 1 provider of legal aid to private people in Norway. Our more than 80 in-house lawyers are specialized in private law. We want our clients to save time, money and hassle on legal matters. Our clients can consider us to be their own law firm.

Core products

Family Legal Insurance

Covers legal aid within important areas of private law, such as family law, heritage law, fixed property matters and consumer purchase of goods or craftsman services. The insurance covers both legal counseling and legal aid in case of conflict. Nine of LO´s national unions in Norway and one in Sweden have collective agreements with HELP and thereby they have made Family Legal Insurance part of the membership in the union.

Homebuyer Insurance

Acts as the counterpart to the seller´s insurance, the Transfer of Ownership Insurance. The insurance gives the client free access to legal assistance in the event of a claim relating to the property purchased. The Homebuyer Insurance is distributed by the most estate agents in Norway and can be purchased from the estate agent at the time of signing the purchase contract at the latest. Homebuyer Insurance is charged as a one-off fee and remains in force for five years.
