Insurance for engineers or consultant engineers
Professional indemnity (PI) insurance
As an engineer or consultant engineer, we understand that you're an expert in your field, providing a professional service.

What cover can PI insurance offer?
If you're responsible for causing financial loss to your client due to inadequate advice or services you have provided, your professional indemnity (PI) policy will protect you. Any legal costs and expenses involved in defending a claim, as well as compensation payable, will be covered.
As an engineer, you strive to avoid making mistakes, but occasionally they do happen. PI insurance protects you and your business if your client alleges a financial loss for:
- a breach of a professional duty of care or unintentional breach of contract
- unintentional breach of confidentiality or copyright
- loss of documents or data.
Just as your clients have individual needs, not all PI insurance is the same. We can arrange a policy that provides the right protection you need to support your clients with confidence. You'll receive these benefits as standard on most PI policies:
- capped excess
- free tax advice helpline for you and on behalf of your clients
- instalment facility
- dedicated claims team
- free 24-hour legal and counselling advice helplines for all partners.
Cyber-crime is now more frequent and sophisticated than ever. Cyber liability insurance can help protect against the risk of an attack on your business.
Having the right office insurance is essential to protect you against damage to your office premises or equipment, minimising the interruption to your business that could lead to loss of income.
