'Qualifying insurers'

In England and Wales you can only buy solicitors’ professional indemnity insurance from an insurer who has signed up to the SRA’s Qualifying Insurers Agreement. There are only around 20 Insurers actively underwriting solicitors' professional indemnity insurance but there is some churn each year with some insurers withdrawing and some new entrants.

90% of law firms use a specialist broker

The product distribution is heavily dominated by insurance brokers who arrange PII on behalf of over 90% of law firms. Like any market you'll find the good, bad and ugly so if you need some expert guidance contact us for details on 0345 251 4000. Also read our guide Why You Need An Insurance Broker.

Setting up a new law firm?

When submitting an application to the Solicitors Regulation Authority, new firms will need to include a quotation or 'offer of professional indemnity insurance' from an SRA authorised professional indemnity insurer. This must be in accordance with the Minimum Terms and Conditions (MTC) as set out in the SRA Indemnity Insurance Rules. 

To obtain a quotation, a fully completed proposal form will be required by insurance companies, together with a copy of the business plan, cash flow forecasts and CV's of the partners or directors. New firms should bear in mind that there is a six year mandatory 'run off' requirement for professional indemnity insurance if you subsequently cease to practice.
