At Towergate we understand that things don’t always go to plan, no matter how diligent you are as a business.

Our Professional Liability policy protects you against the expense and worry associated with potential legal action taken against you, such as contract or copyright disputes, professional negligence, and breach of confidentiality.

Towergate’s policy for Osgo members provides a variety of cover in one product, so there’s no need to purchase a portfolio of different policies to ensure you are protected against various possibilities. Our specialist Professional Liability policy provides essential cover for:

  • Professional Indemnity
  • Public Liability
  • Product Liability
  • Libel and Slander

This policy also gives you access to:

Legal Expenses – this gives you access to a Free 24/7 Legal Helpline, Pre-Hearing Representation and Fitness to Practice Hearing Defence, and cover to pursue and defend your legal rights arising from Contract Disputes or HMRC Tax Investigations.

Markel Law Hub – to compliment the legal advice line, you have access to the Markel Law Hub, an online resource of expert legal and business guides, templates, and content, provided by Markel Law LLP.

Limit of Indemnity Range – we can provide you with quotes for different levels of indemnity so you can increase your cover to ensure that you are adequately protected against any future losses that may occur.
