Professional Indemnity

Purchasing cover against errors and omission and legal defense costs should be given at least the same amount of consideration as one would take when planning a development. It is often solely this insurance protection that stands between allowing a business to continue operating in the face of a claim and in closing its doors.

As a result of an increased awareness of your clients’ legal rights, the need for correctly scoped liability cover has become a necessity and can no longer be seen as a grudge purchase which is only done to comply with legislation.

Our tailored professional indemnity insurance policy caters for these unforeseen eventualities as well as provides legal defense costs cover when you most need it.

Fidelity Guarantee Cover

Indemnity can be secured to safeguard the Insured (the employer) for the loss of business account funds or property sustained as a direct result of acts of fraud, theft, or dishonesty caused by an employee in the course of employment.

Cover can be purchased on either a Blanket Basis, Named Position Basis or Named Person Basis.

Third-Party Impersonation Fraud

Cover can be secured to provide the Insured with protection against the loss of money (business and trust funds) subject to the insured having a Verification process in place.
