Insurance for solicitors explained
Criminal or civil, preparing a case takes hard work, organisation and planning, but the nature of what you do means that disagreements are probably a given, delays are frequent and things won’t always go according to plan. Putting business insurance in place takes care of the things you can’t plan for, so you can get on with looking after your clients and their cases.
Insurance for solicitors - why it matters
The implications of legal rulings can have wide-ranging consequences – and your clients may be unhappy with the outcomes. Win or lose, they may feel they received bad advice, or that they’ve been misrepresented. No matter who’s at fault, if a client brings a claim against your firm you’ll need professional indemnity insurance in place to defend and protect yourself.
Data loss or theft
You’re entrusted with particularly sensitive data relating to your clients, their private dealings and their interests. If that information is lost, stolen or leaked, that could be damaging both financially and from a reputational point of view – and they’ll want your firm to foot the bill. We’ll cover you for expenses and legal claims, and the cost of recovering data so you can focus on their case.
Problems with property
If your offices are damaged in a fire or flood, you’ll face problems with carrying out your day-to-day activities. If burglars steal computers or break other equipment, you could be out of action for days. Having office coverage on your solicitors’ insurance policy means we’ll pay the costs of repairs or replacements and get you back on track.
