Our History

ARAG was founded more than 80 years ago on the principle that everyone should have affordable access to legal representation. That belief still guides us today.

Attorney and entrepreneur Heinrich Faβbender started ARAG in Dϋsseldorf, Germany, as legal protection for car drivers. After three generations, the company is still owned and operated by the founding family and has grown to offer legal protection for all life’s situations. We continue to expand, and today ARAG is a global provider of legal insurance with current operations in 19 countries and a nearly $2 billion worldwide premium base.
