At Collegiate we are focused solely on the small to medium sized professional firms across a range of traditional as well as the newly emerging professions.
Listed below are a range of new and emerging professions we cover, this is an almost limitless class but the list below should provide you with a good idea of the types of business which may benefit from PI Insurance:- If a profession is not listed please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 7459 3456  or e-mail us at underwriting@collegiate.co.uk to discuss your requirements.

 

Key benefits

  • Broad civil liability cover: – should a claim arise from a breach of professional duty, perhaps by giving incorrect advice or making an error in your work then anything that isn’t specifically excluded is covered.
  • Infringement of intellectual property rights like copyright or trademark.
  • Defamation (libel and slander).
  • Loss of professional documents.
All Professional Indemnity Insurance is on a claims made basis, that means you must have an active PI policy at the time a claim or allegation is made against you. It is important to remember that once a PI policy expires you can no longer make any claims against it. Therefore you need to consider maintaining your PI insurance once you cease trading. This is called Run-Off Insurance and provides protection against any claims which may arise from work you undertook in the past. Some professional Institutions require their members to carry Run-Off insurance.

 

Run-Off is an annually renewable policy, the premiums will usually reduce each year to reflect the reducing exposure to insurers.
