Professional Indemnity

working at desk

Providers of professional services can find themselves in disputes with their clients and others claiming damages allegedly caused by their services’ failure to meet their expectations or the legal standard of care. Even when these claims have little or no merit, professional firms must pay for a defence against such allegations, and may even find that a settlement is preferable to the uncertainty and expense of protracted litigation.
