We want you to be confident that your policy covers everything you need it to so please be sure to read the full policy wording (PDF 265kb) before you decide to buy.

Civil Liability (Compulsory)
  • Cover is provided on a civil liability basis and specifically provides cover for claims made against the Insured for legal liability arising from:
    • Breach of professional duty
    • Dishonesty of employees
    • Libel or slander
    • Unintentional breach of confidentiality
    • Unintentional infringement of intellectual property rights (Many insurers limit this cover to copyright only)
    • Loss of or damage to documents
  • Costs of prosecuting claims for infringement of the Insured's intellectual property rights (sub - limit £25,000 in the aggregate)
  • Costs of representation at any inquiry which has a direct relevance to any claim or circumstance
  • Data Protection cover; This relates to the legal costs incurred to defend a criminal prosecution under the Data Protection Act.
  • Irrecoverable Fees. Often claims can be avoided (and therefore business relationships saved) by consideration being given to waiving outstanding fees owed. Where it can be shown that the pursuit of such fees would result in a greater counter-claim then the cover allows us to work with the Insured closely and potentially reimburse the outstanding fees
  • Defence costs (lawyers, court costs, experts etc) which are payable in addition to the Indemnity Limit
  • Compensation of court attendance
  • Release of Confidential Information

Main Exclusions

  • Risks that should be insured elsewhere e.g. Employers and Public Liability, Public / Products Liability, (although these may be included in section 2), Property, Land etc.
