Consultants offer a valuable professional service to their clients

Consultants have the difficult task of improving their clients’ businesses. Clients expect a lot from their consultant partners, and trust them with bringing success to their business. Marketing consultants are expected to build and guide a company’s public perception and reputation.

Management consultants organize a business to increase efficiency and productivity. Any mistake a consultant makes could hamper their clients’ growth or harm their image. Or the consultant could be blamed for something that isn’t their fault.

If severing ties with their consultant partners isn’t enough, a company could take it further and take legal action. It is in those circumstances that having the right kind of insurance is critical to the business of a consultant. The right insurance policy will protect a consultant from legal fees, court costs, and any settlement or judgement fees related to the charges.

Why do consultants need insurance?

As a consultant you are providing advice and council, and sometimes there is an error or omission in the work you perform leading to a lawsuit. A lawsuit, regardless of fault, can be costly to defend.

If you have an office or leased premises you are also exposed to the risk of slips and falls on site. If there is a fire, flood, burst pipe or other peril it can damage your office equipment, furnishings, and cause business to have a financial loss while including additional expenses to relocate while the damage is being fixed.

How is insurance priced for consultants?

The cost of your insurance as a consultant depends on many factors which are addressed in the application. These can include revenue, limits of insurance selected, deductible selected, size of your consulting business and claims history. See how much it costs in just a few minutes.
