If you are in the business of selling your knowledge or skills, you may want to consider taking out professional indemnity insurance.

Professional indemnity insurance safeguards your business against claims for loss or damage made by a client or third party if you make mistakes or are found to have been negligent in some or all of the services you provided. Professional Indemnity I insurance will also cover legal costs.
Many professions are required to have PI insurance cover as a regulatory requirement or as part of their professional authorisation. This includes solicitors, accountants, architects, mortgage intermediaries, insurance brokers and financial advisers. Many consultants, advertising and PR agencies, and designers also choose to have this type of insurance.
