Professional Liability Insurance

Professional Liability provided by Towergate Insurance

Professional Liability insurance

At Towergate we understand that things don’t always go to plan, no matter how diligent you are as a business.
Our Professional Liability policy protects you against the expense and worry associated with potential legal action taken against you, such as contract or copyright disputes, professional negligence, and breach of confidentiality.

We provide a variety of cover in one product, so there’s no need to purchase a portfolio of different policies to ensure you are protected against various possibilities. Our specialist Professional Liability
policy provides essential cover for:
- Professional Indemnity
- Public Liability
- Product Liability
- Libel and Slander

This policy also gives you access to:

  • Legal Expenses – this gives you access to a Free 24/7 Legal Helpline, Pre-Hearing Representation and Fitness to Practice Hearing Defence, and cover to pursue and defend your legal rights arising from Contract Disputes or HMRC Tax Investigations.
  • Markel Law Hub – to compliment the legal advice line, you have access to the Markel Law Hub, an online resource of expert legal and business guides, templates, and content, provided by Markel Law LLP.
  • Limit of Indemnity Range – we can provide you with quotes for different levels of indemnity so you can increase your cover to ensure that you are adequately protected against any future losses that may occur.

Cyber Liability insurance

With cyber-attacks becoming ever more widespread and sophisticated, you need to be sure you’ve got the right protection. What would you do if your business suffered a data breach? Have you got cover for reinstating data? If you’re subject to a regulatory investigation, are your costs covered?

A number of factors in the day to day running of your business can contribute to a data breach – such as lost paper records and ransomware attacks to name two.

We can offer you specialist protection:


- Data protection
- Cyber risks
- Network interruption

Claims Response

- Rapid legal response
- IT Forensics
- Regulatory issues


- Risk management support
- IT security advice
- Legal and technical advice

Our policy also gives access to:

  • Cyber Risks Helpline - In order to assist with risk management and prevent claims, our cyber risks policyholders can contact the helpline to obtain expert legal and technical IT security guidance on issues arising from cyber and data protection risks.
  • PR Crisis Management - Having to deal with the press whilst managing a difficult situation can be particularly stressful for someone with little experience of the media. Mindful that the consequences of adverse press, publicity or media attention present a risk to your business, specified policyholders have access to specialist PR crisis management services.
