What is Solicitors Insurance?

With the availability of insurers changing from year to year, new insurers coming in and other insurers withdrawing, renewing Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) has been a pretty turbulent and stressful exercise for the legal profession.

In recent years, following the changes in the economy and insurers suffering extremely poor loss ratios, those insurers that have not withdrawn from the market completely are incredibly selective about the size of firm and types of risk they are prepared to insure. Broking PII for a solicitor’s practice is more involved than simply completing a proposal form and obtaining terms is very much a job for the specialist.
