This is a brief description of the cover provided and does not contain the full details. We recommend you read the policy wording for full details of cover.
|Professional indemnity - provides cover for claims first made during the policy period, within the territorial limits, which you may become legally liable, arising out of the your professional conduct of the business (as described below) and alleging that liability occurred as a result of a negligent act, error or omission, loss of documents or dishonesty of employees. |

The policy is on a ‘claims made’ basis and only covers claims first made during the policy period and you must advise the insurers during the policy period or any claim or circumstance that may give rise to a claim.
