Professional Indemnity – Solicitors

Since the year 2000, Solicitors have been required to place their Professional Indemnity Insurance through the open market from an ever changing list of insurers. Solicitors in England and Wales must maintain qualifying insurance in accordance with the rules administered by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

Alternative Business Structures and Limited Liability Partnerships must have at least £3m compulsory cover. All other cases (for example, sole practitioners and partnerships), must have at least £2m.

We have seen significant premium fluctuations over the last 20 years as a result of insurers’ appetites on personal injury and conveyancing changing, and a number of insurers going out of business due to a combination of a lack of assets and a large number of claim payments.

Want to talk face to face?

Please call us on 0207 186 1636 and we would be happy to arrange for one of our Account Directors to visit your office free of charge for an initial discussion.

Alice Castle has now concluded through in depth research and their knowledge of the market that it is time for a new approach, and we are visiting all our customers to carry out an individual risk assessment. Your business is truly unique and we demand that all our insurers take this view. We will present your individual risk profile and provide you with personalised quotations which are a true reflection of your own risk.

We want our account directors to come and visit your practice regularly so that we can really understand how you operate and the risks that your company could face. We also recommend meeting with your insurer as this can help to build up a long term relationship which keeps your premium competitive and can assist with the handling of any claims that may be notified.

The sensitive and commercial management of claims is of paramount importance to our clients. We pride ourselves in offering a proactive approach to the management of claims, offering guidance to our clients on the right strategy to be followed to ensure the most commercially suitable outcome. Our claims team is highly experienced and has managed many large and complex claims made against professionals. This experience delivers real value to our clients and sets us apart from many other brokers.
