professional indemnity insurance

Why do you need professional indemnity insurance?

In business you try to prevent mistakes, but occasionally they happen. Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) protects you and your business if your client alleges a financial loss for:

  • a breach of a professional duty of care or unintentional breach of contract;
  • infringement of intellectual property rights;
  • data breaches or misuse of confidential information.

If your business provides advice, a professional service, design or supervision you may need to consider PI Insurance.

  • Protect your reputation
    A claim is not only time-consuming and expensive; it could prevent you from being able to trade. PII ensures that the loss is mitigated and your reputation is kept intact.
  • Proactive mitigation
    PII assists you before a formal claim is made. As soon as you realise a potential mistake, tell us and we will ensure your PII policy responds to mitigate the error and pay the costs of defending you.
