Legal protection safeguarding corporations and professionals

Corporations and professionals such as architects, engineers and lawyers can be exposed to potential claims related to ‘professional liability’.  If a third party suffers a financial loss due to the wrongful acts of a company executive or a professional service provider, the third party may have the right to sue for their loss.  Senior executives and professionals require cover to protect them against potential burden of litigation, and to help protect their reputation, integrity and assets.  Cover for legal costs and expenses is important as litigation involving these individuals is often extremely complex.  It is imperative that they have access to specialised and quality legal representation to safeguard their interests in the most effective way.
