Professional indemnity and financial risks

As the mainstay of our practice for over 50 years we are experts in defending professional indemnity claims against professionals and institutions as well as advising upon regulatory investigations.

We have experience in the following sectors:

  • Accountants and actuaries
  • Barristers
  • Brokers
  • Construction and engineering professionals
  • Educational institutions
  • Emerging professions
  • Financial institutions and independent financial advisers
  • Solicitors
  • Surveyors and property professionals
  • Miscellaneous professions

Each case demands both early assessment and agreement on approach, time spent and cost. We work in partnership with our clients to ensure objectives are met and practical solutions found, while continually seeking to optimise the claim outcome, add value and operate cost-effectively.

Frequent communication with the client and early assessments of cost and indemnity reserves is crucial to help them: manage and predict financial exposure across their portfolios of claims and advise reinsurers accordingly; assist in pricing work and in dealing with specific risk renewals; and decide on a resolution strategy throughout the life of a claim.
