Further to our architects’ PI insurance offering, we offer various other professional insurance services to professionals:

Directors’ & Officers’ Insurance*

Directors are the ‘mind and will’ of any company and can find themselves personally liable to the company, its shareholders, investors, creditors and the general public.

In some cases they may even face criminal sanctions. They are personally responsible for their own actions with unlimited liability and cover is available to protect the directors of Limited companies or Limited Liability Partnerships from the myriad of legal and regulatory hurdles that they may face.

Claims Service

A seamless claims service is provided by our in house claims experts; a team of highly specialist professional indemnity claims handlers will ensure you receive the right advice and protection from day one of a claim notification. Often they are able to deal effectively with the claimant’s initial complaint so that the threat of further legal action is resolved without delay or significant financial impact.

Office Insurance*

If the unexpected happens, not only are you faced with the difficult task of replacing your property and contents, but you lose valuable time where you could have been undertaking profitable business. It is essential that your office productivity is not adversely impacted, your staff are paid on time, your contractual obligations are met and fixed costs paid.

Comprehensive office insurance will help keep your business on track and protect it. Our office insurance facility offers good quality insurance protection for your Business Property, Business Earnings, Legal Liabilities, Commercial Legal Expenses and Personal Accident cover, all at competitive prices.
