Professional Indemnity (PI) Insurance

Professional indemnity insurance is a vital protection measure for any business that provides advice or services in a professional capacity.

A PI policy will cover you for damages and costs in relation to claims of professional negligence or incorrect advice.

While not a legal requirement, many sectors are strongly recommended to have a PI policy in place, and many don’t realise how vital they are.

Think your business would benefit from having a strong PI policy in place? Get in touch and let one of our experienced team take care of the rest.

Make An Enquiry

    Professional indemnity insurance covers you for legal costs and compensation that arise from claims of negligence or bad advice that results in financial loss.

    Civil Liability

    If a client or end-user suffers financial losses because of any advice or information you provided, your PI policy covers legal costs, awards and settlements for your business and your employees.

    Breach of Confidentiality

    If your client has entrusted your business with personal or confidential information and these are unintentionally shared without their permission, your PI policy will cover any resulting claims that arise.


    You may accidentally damage someone’s reputation in the process of conducting your business, resulting in legal action and compensation being awarded. Your PI insurance will cover these costs up to the value of your cover limit.

    Copyright/Trademark Infringement

    If your advice unintentionally suggests your client should copy or produce a derivative of another work, you may be pursued by the copyright holder or by your client for any loss of income therein.

    Loss of Documents

    Your PI policy covers the cost of replacing or restoring documents that are damaged or lost while left in the care of your company.

    Formal Investigation

    If you are investigated by your professional or regulatory body, your PI policy will help defend any resulting legal action that is brought against you.

    Employee Dishonesty

    Provides cover if your customers suffer a loss caused as the result of a dishonest or fraudulent act by a member of your team.

    Disputed Fees

    Your PI policy provides you with cover for legal fees if you seek unpaid fees and your client threatens to counter-sue you if you pursue them.


    This can be added to your policy if advice or designs provided by you or your business result in environmental damage.
