Why Brunel PI?

Solicitors’ professional indemnity insurance is a unique marketplace, Brunel PI Brokers have the experience, knowledge, and market relationships to help law firms of all sizes.

2000 marked the end of the Solicitors Indemnity Fund (SIF) forcing all solicitor practices in England & Wales out into the open market to purchase their professional indemnity insurance. It’s been a somewhat unsettled market, with insurers coming and going, claim activity spiking and premiums fluctuating. Insurer participation has been relatively consistent in recent years, with some new entrants in 2022/23 but we are still experiencing some very challenging negotiation conditions, particularly for conveyancing practices. Brunel PI Brokers have the experience required to present our clients’ businesses to insurers to negotiate the very best terms.

Our service includes:

  • Cover up to £20,000,000
  • A-rated insurers
  • Access to the majority of insurers on the SRA list of participating insurers
  • In-house claims handling support
  • Cyber insurance quotation for all firms
  • HR, regulatory and compliance support through the My Business Hub application
  • Full business insurance broking services including office, travel, and Directors & Officers

The market for solicitors’ professional indemnity insurance is broken into partner sections which determines which insurers are available to quote.
