We are recognised for our focus on exposures for new and emerging professions

Our emerging professions liability team is at the forefront of assisting our insurer clients in product development and policy drafting and have developed genuine expertise in this sector. We recognise the growing importance of this sector for insurers and have responded to market needs with innovative, commercially sound solutions to new claims and their processes.

We have experience handling individual claims and scheme work for insurers regarding a wide range of professionals including charities/ associations, designers, educational consultants, management consultants, mortgage administrators, marketing professionals and will writers.

Our team understands that professions considered as emerging in one jurisdiction may be well established in another. We therefore draw on our deep rooted sector knowledge from our international network and understanding of local customs to guide insurers through these issues.
