A major risk for companies operating in the legal industry is the possibility of providing a client with wrong, or faulty information. A Professional Indemnity Insurance plan, also known as Errors and Omissions Insurance, covers law firms against the possibility of providing wrong advice to clients.
In the event that an error is found to have been made by the employees of a law firm covered by a professional indemnity insurance policy, the firm will be covered for the costs of mounting a legal defence against a claimant, as well receive protection in the event that an unfavourable settlement goes against the company.
The purchase of a professional indemnity insurance policy should be considered by any legal company operating in Hong Kong, China, or the greater APAC region.

Law firms and legal companies are extremely dependent on the contributions of the business’ partners – the loss of a partner can severely impact the ability of the firm to do continue operations.
In the event of a serious accident, injury, or illness which results in the death or long-term disablement of a partner in the firm, a Partnership Protection insurance policy will provide the company with a lump sum payment which can be used to assist in the day-to-day operations of the company or buy the partner out of the business; leaving the remaining owners free to focus on running the firm.
This type of insurance can also be known as Key Man Life Insurance, but is normally specially designed specifically to cover law firms.
