Professional indemnity insurance for IT consultants is vital because you may face claims from both your clients and the end user. With potential errors around data protection, programming issues, and failure of software, amongst others, a mistake on the part of an IT consultant can have a serious financial impact on a business.
We’ve worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes across the UK for more than 30 years, so we understand the challenges you face and the importance of providing independent, impartial and practical insurance advice. Our professional indemnity insurance specialists work with a select panel of insurers to ensure you have the right level of cover for your business – and provide expert advice – at a competitive price.

It depends upon the type of work undertaken, typical contract values, and a host of other factors.
