Professional Indemnity insurance matters

Professional indemnity insurance is not a legal requirement for business but is mandatory in some industries, such as medicine, accounting, law and financial advisers and it is recommended for anyone who is providing professional services or advice in exchange for a fee – like engineers, graphic designers, or IT consultants.

protect your assets & brand reputation if your advice or services cause a client to take legal action against you.

The amount of cover your business needs will depend on the nature of your work and the type of clients you service. If you work with large organisations in heavily regulated industries, then your professional indemnity requirements are likely to be higher.
