Professional indemnity insurance

If you are contracting or working through a limited company, you may have to deal with dissatisied customers who accuse you of "negligence". It is essential to have professional indemnity insurance (PI) to cover your defence costs and any resulting damages awarded against you in case of this eventuality. You may be required to have this cover by an agency or company you work for. Through key partnerships, 1st Contact can provide you with instant cover.

If you offer professional services to clients, you can be expxposed to claims alleging "negligence", particularly if you are working through a limited company.

PI also covers:

  • Loss of data
  • Employee dishonesty
  • Breach of contract resulting from any neglect, error or omission
  • Unintentional breach or infringement or unauthorised use of intellectual property
  • Libel and slander

Please note: PI does not provide cover for third party damage or injury caused as a result of your negligence.

We have some exciting news
for all our 1st Contact clients...

1st Contact is rebranding to Sable International!

For the last 18 months we've been merging with our big brother, Sable International. By the end of the year, we're going to complete the rebrand.

The accountants, brokers, advisors and caseworkers that you are used to dealing with will not be going anywhere as the entire 1st Contact team will be in the same roles at Sable International. You'll still get that same great service, just under a new name.

We'll be keeping you in the loop as we prepare for the next exciting phase in this rebranding.
