What is management consultant insurance?
Cover designed with consultants in mind
As a professional management consultant your role will require you to help your clients solve various business issues, from improving business performance through improved effectiveness and efficiencies to helping business reduce costs where necessary. The role you do is varied and will require specialised insurance cover to truly offer the level of protection you’ll need. You will be offering professional, sound and expert service to your clients, making recommendations for businesses who will then rely on your advice. Our management consultant insurance includes professional indemnity cover as standard, helping to protect you should a client make a claim against you for your advice, should they believe this advice to be incorrect leading them suffer some form of financial damage.
We can put together a bespoke policy that will focus around what your business does and needs when it comes to insurance. Our personalised business insurance policies are designed to allow you to add, remove, increase or decrease all areas of your insurance policy meaning that you’ll have all of the essential cover you’ll need in one business insurance policy.

How insurance for management consultants works
Examples of Management consultant insurance in action
A case of poor consultancy
A genuine oversight nearly led to disaster for the career and job security of a management consultant. Working with a client in Scotland for the first time, she rang up her usual lawyer for a little bit of legal advice. Unfortunately, it transpired that the legal situation in Scotland was different from England and as she had not advised the lawyer of this fact, she was liable for the significant costs that the client encountered as a result. Much to her relief, she discovered that the professional indemnity insurance that she had held for years extended to legal advice given by her and was there to cover the significant costs of the action that she faced.
