Our Expertise

Directors and Officers Liability
One of the most important elements of risk management for companies at any stage is adequate directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most poorly understood elements. Entering into a policy negotiation with a partner who understands the intricacies of cover and complexities facing your industry has a dramatic effect on the cover awarded by a policy. For more information, please email us.
For any company or organisation, a data security breach can be extremely costly with far-reaching consequences. Unfortunately, it is not a matter of if it will happen, but when will it happen. Cyber insurance can transfer a range of risks to insurance. A carefully tailored policy can protect your liabilities to customers, clients, individuals, and regulators. For more information, please email us.
Professional Indemnity
Professional services companies are exposed to disputes with their clients and others, with claims for loss caused by their alleged failure to meet their expectations or their professional standards. For more information, please email us.
Intellectual Property Litigation
Intellectual Property (IP) is one of the most valuable assets held by any company. IP insurance provides cover for both damages and defence costs resulting from claims against a company’s patents, copyrights, designs, trademarks, trade secrets, and domain names. For more information, please email us.
Clinical Trials
Undertaking clinical investigation of your discovery creates unique risks, especially as you recruit across the globe, seeking the cohort and key opinion leaders required to optimise the result. Clinical Trial Insurance offers financial protection to both the sponsor conducting the trial and the volunteers or patients who are participating. For more information, please email us.
Employment Practices Liability
For companies of all sizes, there has never been a greater need to reduce their risk exposure by having an Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPL) policy in place. Lawsuits arising from allegations of discrimination, sexual harassment, workplace bullying, wrongful dismissal, and many other employment-related issues can potentially expose an organisation to heavy financial losses, disruption to productivity, and irreparable damage to brand and corporate reputation. For more information, please email us.
Business Travel
In a global economy, many companies send staff abroad. While business travel can be a standard part of a job, travel overseas creates many risks. It is crucial that companies look after their employees while on travel, just as they would in the office. For more information, please email us.
