Why get insurance?

As a director, officer or manager, you have a lot of people to consider in your day-to-day role. From employees and shareholders, to customers and regulators, you’re responsible for making sure things go smoothly.

If something does go wrong, you’re at a greater risk of being sued. Though you can’t predict when someone will make a claim against you, you can protect yourself and your company with insurance.

We work with a range of leading insurers, including Aviva, Allianz, Travelers, PEN and QBE. Through our team of commercial insurance specialists, you can get a policy that’s tailored to your needs.

Types of claims

Depending on the level of cover you choose, your policy can protect you against a range of claims. For example:

Type of claim
What this means
Health and safety
This will cover legal expenses and any compensation you need to pay out due to a breach of health and safety. For example, if one of your staff becomes seriously ill or injured due to an accident at work.
Deprivation of assets
This will cover you if your assets and bank accounts are frozen and you need to pay for a common expense. Common expenses include school fees, mortgage payments, utilities or personal insurance.
Employment practices liability
If you fail to follow your duties as an employer and are taken to court as a result, you’ll be covered for any defence costs and compensation that you need to pay. For example, if you fire an employee and it’s found to be an unfair dismissal.
Corporate legal liability
This will cover you for a variety of corporate legal liability cases. For example, if you use someone else’s image in a marketing campaign and are found guilty of copyright infringement.
Commercial crime
This covers money laundering, false advertising, embezzlement and more. For example, if you find a member of your staff has set up a ‘ghost’ employee on the payroll and is fraudulently claiming a salary.
