Litigation claims are a real risk to businesses, especially small companies who have very little financial backing. Just one small claim could spell disaster. Legal action can be extremely costly but with the right type of indemnity insurance behind you it is possible to carry on.  Full cover will be able to protect you against a number of problems such as:

  • The cost of compensation which would be required to pay out if you are found guilty of negligence. This could range greatly in price from a few hundred to hundreds of thousands.
  • The legal fees which come from hiring legal representation. These fees might need to be paid even if you are found to be not guilty.
  • Copyright and intellectual property right infringement can happen without you realising.
  • Breach of contract claims could be made against your business or you as an individual. You might have clients claiming against you if they feel you did not follow the terms of the contract, if their data was involved in a confidentiality breach or if documents relating to your clients are lost.
