Professional indemnity insurance

Protection for your law firm

Why get Professional indemnity insurance (PII)?

Insuring your law firm is likely to be one of your top five expenses. That’s why it’s key to work with a broker that has your firm’s best interests in mind. We work exclusively with lawyers, using our sector knowledge to find cover that’s right for you.

  • Protects your firm against civil liability claims if your team’s practice is called into question
  • Independent broker with access to leading insurers
  • Support and advice throughout the year, not just during your renewal period
  • 12-month access to DG Legal Compliance Caddy software
  • Legal Compliance helpline, consultancy and webinars
  • Discounted home and motor insurance for your staff

Choosing a broker

When you choose us, you’ll be working with a team that’s dedicated to lawyers. We use our years of practice experience and legal knowledge to find a policy that’s tailored to your firm’s needs.

We know that no two law firms are the same. Which is why we take the time to understand your PII needs and negotiate with insurers for you. Once we’ve found you a policy, we don’t just leave. We’re on hand to give you support and advice, whenever you need us the most.

Our core values

Dedicated to law firms

We’re here for you all year round, not just the October renewal season.

Trusted insurers

We only deal with A-rated insurers, so your law firm gets comprehensive cover.

Support with claims

We work alongside insurers when you need to make a claim, to give you a voice in negotiations.

Our expertise

We know the ins and outs of your profession. From our years of brokering and advising PII to law firms, we specialise in:

  • Developing risk management strategies, supported by accredited LEXCEL quality consultants.
  • Insurance considerations of key developments (OFR and ABS).
  • Implications of industry rules (successor practices) and the compliance (COLP/COFA) regime.
  • Claims and circumstance notification. We add value with expert advice, not just relay information to the insurer.
