Solicitors Insurance

As an established commercial insurance broker David J Miller have the facility to provide competitive solicitors insurance through our access to the leading solicitors professional indemnity insurance markets including Lloyds of London. If you are considering alternative options at renewal please contact us. We will be happy to assess your risk with a view to bringing down your premium.

Most solicitors have a common renewal date of the 1st October for their professional indemnity insurance making the run up to this date a busy period for those within this sector with most insurers keen to have commitment as early as possible.

Solicitors Insurance Costs

As a law firm this will no doubt be one of your largest costs and with very few brokers having access to facilities that provide solicitors insurance this makes finding a new broker a difficult prospect if you are looking for an alternative quote. With the level of premiums you are paying it is imperitive that you source the right broker to service your needs.

Our specialist PI account managers are well versed within this sector and can help ease the hassle of your renewal from small to large law firms throughout the UK.

There are still competitive insurance rates available to solicitors firms that are well run with above average claims experience and a willingness to show a good attitude to in-house risk management to avoid claims.

We Provide Solicitors Insurance to Clients Nationwide

We mainly cater for clients regionally within Lancashire & the North West by reputation and for those looking for a personal service. Our aim is to build strong working relationships with our clients that are built on trust and it is through this that our reputation and reach is expanding nationwide across the UK. Although when dealing with clients across the country we are sometimes unable to visit you on site and meet face to face we still aim to provide a better service than our competitors alongside providing more competitive terms. If you are looking for an alternative broker or an alternative quote then please contact us.
