Accountants work across a wide range of businesses and in a very litigious environment. This broad package insurance policy was built specifically for these professions and fills the gaps in cover left by many traditional professional liability policies by addressing the real exposures these businesses face on a daily basis. Most small and medium-sized businesses operating in this area are suitable for this product, and our modular policy can be tailored to suit a company’s individual requirements. Some select coverage features are listed below.
Comprehensive legal cover
Our policy includes cover for suits brought anywhere in the world as standard. We also offer full civil liability coverage and cover costs incurred by attending court sessions in relation to a claims or loss case covered by this policy.
Clear, unambiguous cover for breach of a client contract. We will pay sums which you become legally obliged to pay as a result of a claim by a client made against you, including liability for claimants’ costs and expenses.
Reputation & brand protection cover
We will look to pay costs and expenses of up to a specified sub-limit for the services of a public relations consultancy to mitigate damage to reputation and brand following a claim otherwise covered under the policy.
Claims can quickly spiral out of control and incur a significant cost to the business or individual. That’s why our policy includes the payment of fees withheld by an aggrieved client if this mitigates a potentially larger claim.
Breach of Intellectual Property rights
Our policy covers costs associated with copyright and trademark infringement claims being brought against you, including legal costs, damages, settlements and counterclaims.
Virus & hacking liability cover
Most businesses hold sensitive data entrusted to them by their clients. Losing this data as a result of a hack attack or computer virus can lead to potential liability and significant brand damage. In order to address this emerging risk, we have designed a specific module of cover that provides explicit protection.
Traditional office cover
Our policy includes a comprehensive package of coverage including products liability, employers’ liability, property cover, and our innovative business interruption insurance.
Business interruption cover
It’s not always possible to foresee where the next business interruption comes from, so our innovative cover is offered on a “flexible first loss” basis, which means whatever type of business interruption loss is suffered, only one sum insured needs to be purchased.
Property in transit
We recognise that your property travels with you, so our cover includes worldwide mobile device protection as standard, and can be extended to other property you value.
