Frequently asked questions
What's the difference between legal expenses insurance and professional indemnity insurance?
Legal expenses insurance covers your business for a wide range of potential legal disputes including investigations by the Health & Safety Executive, contract disputes, employment disputes with employees and the costs of attending court if required to when you have a claim covered under the policy.
Professional indemnity insurance, on the other hand, specifically covers against allegations of professional negligence – namely errors or mistakes you make in a piece of work (such as a project or report) for a client.
The two types of cover insure against different scenarios, therefore, it's important you consider arranging both to ensure full protection.
What level of cover is available?
Our legal expenses insurance offers limits of up to £100,000.
Please note this is subject to a total limit of £1m for all claims made in a policy period. For full details, please refer to the Summary of Cover and Policy Wording.
