Howden Quarterly Premium Matters

  • Posted on

Have you heard the good news? Howden has recently launched its new Professional Indemnity facility for solicitors underwritten by selected ‘A’ rated Lloyd’s of London insurers.

Click here for more information on this.

Having launched our new facility, we thought this was an opportune time to lead this edition of Premium Matters with an article reflecting on the open market solution for solicitors PII, that has now been in place for 23 years. And with the 1 October PII renewal just around the corner we have also included a pre-renewal checklist to help you along.

The Building Safety Act 2022 continues to attract attention and is proving challenging for property lawyers. On 6 September Howden is hosting a webinar with Ian Quayle who is a leading expert on this issue. We set the scene with an article from Ian in this edition of Premium Matters.

Here is a link to register for the seminar in case you have missed this.

AI is another issue in the headlines and a further guest article from Jonathan Blair of Womble Bond Dickinson provides some reassurance on this and counsels firms not to panic.

If your firm undertakes unbundled legal services, or you have this on your agenda, then you might be interested in our summary of the results of the SRA pilot.

And finally we invite you to read the cyber report that has been published by the Cyber team here at Howden.

At Howden we understand the importance of keeping law firms informed on the issues relating to PII, risk and legal practice.
