Insurance for the Legal Sector
Solicitors are expected to think ahead - to provide sound counsel and reliably anticipate risks. The same could be said of law firms themselves. A firm's success and good name depend on its ability to confidently prepare for the future.
Travelers can help in that effort. As one of the UK's leading solicitors' professional indemnity insurers, we have an expert team of underwriters, claims handlers and risk managers with experience in many areas of the legal sector. We help clients understand and manage their risks so they can deliver superior service and embrace new opportunities that will enrich their business.
Our Industry Expertise
The team consists of over 20 qualified solicitors, meaning we have first-hand knowledge of the profession and its changing legal and regulatory landscape. We understand that the legal sector can be exposed to potential claims that range from the professional advice that they give, right through to their property and liability exposures.
In addition to our solicitors' professional indemnity insurance, we have developed a comprehensive property and liability cover tailored for the legal sector. To protect our customers when they need it most, we have built a combined package of property, liability and business interruption cover, as well as access to our claims handling and risk management support.
Who Is This Right For?
We designed our comprehensive cover to manage the commercial risk and professional reputations of legal firms, large and small. For those companies with international operations, or looking to expand overseas, we provide international insurance placement with UK-based claims handling support.
