No professional enjoys being confronted with a lawsuit that impugns their professional standing and we do everything possible to minimise the stress of finding themselves needing to defend their reputations. We appreciate just how important it is for them to maintain their reputation and their professional relationships when going through the claims process.

The expanding statutory liability and warranty regime in a number of industries means that it is all important to ensure that your advisers are on top you’re the exposure your industry faces. Our expertise covers almost all professions and semi-professional trades. We advise small and medium-sized businesses that hold professional indemnity or errors and emissions cover as well as individual professionals.

We work as part of a team with insurers and their insureds to enable a smooth path through the litigation process by helping them fully understand and appreciate the rights and obligations under their policy, and mapping out the prospects of successfully defending the claim.

For insurers we advise on coverage and wording to ensure policies are fit for purpose for different professions.
