Services

We specialise in liability insurance, including professional indemnity, public liability and employers’ liability, covering the specific risks of a particular sector.

Our sector specialisms include IT, business consultancy, technical and engineering, marketing and creative, teaching, photography, fitness and sports and more.

 

Professional indemnity insurance

Professional indemnity insurance protects you against allegations of mistakes you make when providing professional services, advice or designs to your client. Many clients will require you to have professional indemnity insurance in place before you can start work.

 

Public liability insurance

Public liability insurance protects you against allegations of injuring someone at work or causing damage to third party property. Similar to professional indemnity insurance, most clients will need you to prove you have public liability insurance cover.

 

Employers’ liability insurance and more

Employers’ liability insurance protects you against allegations of injury (or illness) suffered by employees as a result of their employment with you. We also offer portable equipment insurance, occupational personal accident insurance and cyber & data risks insurance.
