Professional Indemnity Select

Professional Indemnity insurance should be considered by any business or person providing a service such as advice, design, skills or knowledge in a professional capacity.

In conjunction with Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, we have designed a range of Professional Indemnity products that offer broad wordings, covering areas such as professional neglect, negligent statement and actions, libel and slander, malicious falsehood, passing off copyrights and breach of confidentiality.

We can provide Professional Indemnity cover as an optional section within our existing large and mid-corporate Property and Casualty and Motor Trade propositions. It can also be purchased on a standalone basis.

Features of Professional Indemnity Select

  • Cover for breach of professional duty – infringement of copyright, breach of confidentiality, defamation and other types of civil liability with a limit of indemnity up to £5m
  • Fraud and dishonesty – liability of your business to any third party resulting from fraudulent or dishonest conduct
  • Lost documents – costs of replacing or restoring documents lost or damaged in transit in custody or control up to £100K
  • Court attendance cover – if attending court as a witness when defending a claims up to £300 per day (£150 for employees)
  • Joint ventures cover – cover against the liability arising from the customer’s professional services in relation to any joint venture.

Cover is provided:

  • On an innocent non-disclosure condition – waiving our rights to avoid the insurance cover in the event we are satisfied of innocent non–disclosure, or innocent misrepresentation
  • On a claims made basis – as opposed to occurrence basis
  • On a civil liability basis (widest form of cover available) – allows for any civil liability to be claimed, rather than restricted errors and omissions cover
  • On any one claim basis – every single claim made during the period of insurance is entitled to the full indemnity limit. We can also arrange cover on an aggregate basis if required for the costs of defending claims and damages associated with losses incurred as a result of alleged professional neglect or omission.
