What if…

patents, copyrights, trademarks, domain name rights? Or your own IP is infringed? Intellectual property is the holy grail; but what if someone else claimed your idea – in India? Do you have the right IP insurance?
Did you ask about stock deterioration insurance?
More than half of all cyber incidents start with employees, and the average breach costs $4 million. Are your risk management processes and cyber liability insurance fit for purpose?
Nearly 25% of US class actions in 2019 were against Life Science companies*. Where do you start with clinical trials liability? We’ll review your protocol and patient consent forms to secure the right protection to satisfy the ethics committee.
Business interruption, including supply chain failures, remains the top peril for companies worldwide – and Brexit, Covid and climate-related natural disasters are adding to the risk.
or perhaps you’re heading for the exit? Fundraising, M&A, trade sales and IPOs make you vulnerable. You’re sued for contract breach or a client dispute threatens to escalate? Will your brand and relationships suffer a very public spat?
What if something happens to a shareholder – or a key rainmaker falls critically ill – could it impact your income? How do you attract great people in the war for talent? Looking after the wellbeing of your people helps keep them motivated, loyal and productive.
