Group Legal Plan
The Hyatt Group Legal Services Plan provides you and your family access to a network of attorneys who can provide a wide range of professional legal services including:
|Hyatt Group Legal Services|
The Hyatt Legal Plan allows access to a nationwide network of participating attorneys. Plan Attorneys have met stringent selection criteria and have an average of more than 16 years of legal experience.
Plan Attorney assistance includes:
- Consultation on the telephone
- In-person consultation
- Document preparation
- Representation in many frequently necessary legal matters
You have the flexibility to use a non-Plan Attorney and be reimbursed for the covered services according to a set fee schedule. If you use a non-Plan Attorney, you will be responsible for paying the difference between the Plan payment and the out-of-network attorney’s charge for the service.
There are limitations to this plan. Covered legal services do not include representation in litigation matters.
Legal advice is just a phone call away. When you face a situation that you think has legal implications, simply pick up the phone. A knowledgeable Client Service Representative will be available to assist you in locating a Plan Attorney near your home or workplace. Plan Attorneys are generally available to meet with you on weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays.
Certain areas are not covered by the plan and there is no obligation to provide legal service benefits in any matter deemed frivolous, harassing or in contravention of the rules of ethical conduct by governing attorneys.
