Whilst the professional indemnity policy is triggered if you receive a threat of legal action or a client tries to recover compensation, legal expenses insurance is designed to help with everyday legal issues.
Use your legal expenses policy to get legal advice before a problem escalates, or to put an end to late paying clients.
If you’ve ever found yourself with a legal question and turning to Facebook, Reddit and Slack communities for answer, you should consider legal expenses insurance. After all, it’s better to get expert advice from a legal adviser than the online echo chambers.
Everyday issues like unpaid invoices and keeping on the right side of IR35 are a worry. The debt recovery service and tax protection cover will help should those problems arise, freeing you up to focus on your most important asset—your productivity.
