What is business consultants' insurance?

When you work as a business consultant, your clients depend on your expertise and advice to help them make good decisions and drive growth in their business. This means you carry a high level of responsibility for their success, and if something goes wrong based on your advice, you could be held liable for it. Business consultants' insurance can protect you in the event that a claim is made against you, but you can choose the right cover to fit your business needs.

At, we understand what you are exposed to as a business consultant, and we know what you need cover for most. Whether you consult in business management, information technology or human resources, taking out comprehensive consultants' insurance can give you protection against the things you care about most. We can walk you through the process to help you find the cover you need to give you peace of mind as you go about your daily responsibilities.

Who needs business consultants' insurance?

If you are paid to offer professional advice as a third-party entity to any department where you have business clients, you are a consultant. And no matter how solid your advice is, how creative your strategies are, or how comprehensive your planning is, you can never be certain that nothing will go wrong. Unexpected changes can and will happen, and while you're flexible enough to revert to plan B, your clients' reliance on your advice could lead to finger pointing if things turn sour.

If someone makes a claim against you for liability, it won't go away no matter how much you know you are in the right. Business consultants' insurance is for all whose professional advice is relied upon by businesses, and it will provide you with the funds you need to get legal assistance when you need it.

What does business consultants' insurance cover?

In a nutshell, it can cover your legal costs when you are forced to defend yourself against claims or allegations of negligence made against you by clients and third parties. The basis of these claims can often be the result of errors in your work or failure to do certain things. Depending on the policy you take out, you can get cover for:

  • ​Loss of documents
  • Defamation
  • Negligent misrepresentation
  • Intellectual property infringement
  • Breach of confidentiality
  • Employee dishonesty
  • Virus transmission
