Professional indemnity for business and management consultants

As a consultant, you provide a vital service to your clients. You’re often trusted to make significant contributions to your clients’ business and you’re expected to be experts in your field.

We have experience of providing professional indemnity insurance for business consultants just like you, and we know that mistakes can happen, despite your best efforts. Perhaps you give incorrect advice about a project which your client relies upon and, as a result, loses money.

Professional indemnity insurance can give you peace of mind and ensure that you present a professional and trustworthy image in front of your clients.

Liability insurance

When considering what insurance for business consultants should include, it’s worth giving some thought to the risks your business is exposed to. If you visit clients at their premises or have clients or members of the public visiting yours, you could be held responsible for loss or damage that occurs. Hiscox public liability insurance is designed to cover the cost of settling or defending a claim from a client or member of the public that they’ve suffered bodily injury or property damage as a result of your business. This could be something as simple as damaging a client’s high-spec laptop by spilling a drink while working at their office. If you don’t have the right cover in place it could end up being a very costly accident.

It’s a legal requirement for most businesses with employees to have a minimum level of employers’ liability insurance in place. It’s designed to protect your business against the cost of settling or defending claims from an employee that they’ve suffered injury or disease because of the work they do for you. This could be an injury to a part-time worker caused by tripping over a loose bit of carpet.
