New legal helpline for solicitors
Published On : 15 Feb 2018
Disciplinary proceedings against professionals often arise in conjunction with negligence claims. But when professionals find themselves called to account by their regulator, a complex set of problems often arises.
Sensitive, expert handling is essential where professional careers and reputations are at stake in addition to the financial liabilities which may arise from the same facts. However your professional indemnity policy does not cover those legal costs in respect of investigating and defending those investigations/proceedings.
That's why Pen are delighted to offer an new service to solicitors firms. From 2018, solicitors firms insured by Pen will get the benefit of access to a lawyer from Kennedys, a leading insurance law firm with specific expertise in this area. We are offering up to two hours of free advice, but firms will then be able, if they choose, to engage Kennedys to assist further at a favourable rate.
Kennedys’ legal disciplinary team offers a combination of discretion, sensitivity and tactical knowhow to support legal professionals through the most difficult of issues.
