Why invite Howden to quote?

With exclusive access to insurers being one of them, its important to consider Howden for your insurance placement this year. Here are a few more reasons why.

Why should you meet with us?

  • We have access to more good quality insurance capacity for solicitors practices with four or more partners than any other broker. This greatly enhances the likelihood of us being able to provide the most competitive quotation.
  • We have more than 20 years’ experience in solicitors Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  • We manage Professional Indemnity Insurance for around 20% of all 4 to 10 partner Law firms.
  • We are Chartered Insurance Brokers.

Don't all brokers claim to be the best?

Yes they do, but to get really competitive premiums, a broker needs exclusive access to insurers. Your broker might claim they can get a quotation from all available participating insurers but that might not be the case. We can offer:

  • Exclusive access to four 'A' rated insurers.
  • We have major accounts with AIG, Allianz, AmTrust Europe Limited, Aviva, Axis, C V Starr, Endurance, Travelers, WR Berkley, QBE, XL & Zurich.

We place more than £50m of solicitors’ Professional Indemnity Insurance premium in the London Insurance Market which gives us real negotiating strength.

I haven't got time to fill out endless proposal forms

  • We can use the proposal form that you complete for your existing insurer. 

Will you deliver on service as well as price?

  • We have 140 staff who deal exclusively with Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  • You will have a dedicated account manager and legally qualified claims handlers.
  • Over 1,000 legal services firms choose Howden to manage their Professional Indemnity Insurance from Sole Practitioners to firms with 200+ Partners.
