With 220 new solicitors’ firms appointing Brunel Professional Risks as their professional indemnity insurance broker for the first time in 2012, Brunel believes it is one of the fastest growing professional indemnity insurance brokers for solicitors.

Brunel advises a wide range of legal businesses including local high street practices, highly specialist niche advisers and the UK’s major law firms.

I’d like to thank all our new and existing solicitor clients for entrusting Brunel with their PII broking in 2012,” said Russell Lane, Managing Director.  “Our commitment to delivering high levels of personal service, expert claims and risk management services, coupled with access to the whole open insurance market, has clearly appealed to many firms.”

The Solicitors Regulation Authority has reported that insurers have underwritten nearly £240 million of business for solicitors in England and Wales for the 2012/13 PII year.  A total of 22 insurers from the SRA’s Qualifying Insurer list secured business.  The SRA’s press release is here and the market share of the qualifying insurers is available here.

As a fully open market broker we are not tied to any insurers’ schemes which means we can access all open insurance markets for our clients,” said Russell Lane.  “That means we can find compelling terms and insurers for our clients, whatever their requirements.”
