2016 Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance information:
With several new ‘A’ rated Insurer entrants to the Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance market during the last 12 months there is no better time to test pricing and service for your PII renewal. In fact Butler Evans have already secured terms well below last year’s pricing levels for 2016 indemnity year policies. However, firms should note the following advice to ensure they receive the best value quotations:
- Use a fully independent broker, such as Butler Evans, who can approach the whole Insurance Market on your behalf.
- Do not approach many different brokers, the insurance market is still relatively small and insurers work on a first come first served basis. You are better served by working with a broker who will carefully review your proposal documents before sending your enquiry to the market.
- Use a broker who will offer their services at a competitive level of fee/commission
We are a friendly and experienced team who have placed primary Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance since the 2001 cessation of the Solicitors Indemnity Fund, so please do give us a call:

Alpha/QIM Insurance Renewals from July 2015:
The Underwriting Agency who bound business on behalf of Alpha Insurance have now obtained support from a new ‘A’ Rated carrier. However, not all renewals are being carried over without a new proposal form being completed.
Firms being asked to complete a new form should seek alternative quotations as a precautionary measure. Butler Evans can obtain quotations for you, please visit our Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance Quotes page for help.
Further, during the 2013 renewal period Alpha Insurance offered some quotations on what we would describe as a expensive terms due to lack of market capacity, if you have not reviewed your Alpha PII terms in 2014 you should seek some alternative Solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance quotations this year.
