Frequently asked questions about solicitors Professional Indemnity insurance:

  1. What is Professional Indemnity insurance (PI)?
    Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance provides cover should a third party suffer a financial loss as a result of your professional error, omission or negligence. 
  2. What limit of indemnity do I need?
    We recommend you check the Solicitors Regulation Authority requirements. It’s always good business practice to also review your contracts, both pending and current, to assess whether your limit is sufficient, taking into account if a claim is made in a number of years.
  3. Will my policy cover my past work?
    Yes. The PI policies we arrange provide cover retrospectively.
  4. Would my policy respond if I have a claim for work I undertook three years ago before I moved to Aon?
    Professional Indemnity Insurance is constructed on a claims made basis and therefore it is the policy in force when the claim is made, which would respond, regardless of when the work was undertaken, subject to policy terms and conditions.
