Optimal protection for professional risks: insurance solutions for lawyers, tax advisers, accountants and notaries

Legal and business consultancy professions face growing challenges. The legal environment in which lawyers, tax advisers, accountants and registered auditors, and insolvency administrators and notaries operate is becoming increasingly complex and is subject to continuous change.

At the same time the mentality of these professionals’ clients is becoming more demanding in terms of what they feel they should get and judgements are tending to be more client-friendly. Furthermore there is a high demand of adaptation because of the increasing internationalisation in this area and the growing number of multi-disciplinary partnerships.
