Professional Indemnity Insurance

The Expert Witness Institute has arranged a block Professional Indemnity insurance policy on behalf of members to cover the activities they carry out as expert witnesses through Horner Blakey Insurance Brokers.

The Expert Witness Institute requires all its members to have Professional Indemnity insurance cover in respect of their expert witness work.

The block Professional Indemnity insurance policy is administered by Horner Blakey, and has an annual renewal date of the 1st November. Members of the Expert Witness Institute can join at any time throughout the year, and will be covered subject to the satisfactory completion of a Professional Indemnity insurance declaration form and payment of the premium to Horner Blakey. PLEASE NOTE: The policy is currently only available to members who are either permanent residents of the UK or own a UK registered entity (a Ltd company for example).

All documents are available below, and include the Expert Witness Institute Professional Indemnity Insurance Declaration form, Expert Witness Institute Professional Indemnity Insurance Summary of Cover, Professional Indemnity insurance Policy Wording, and Horner Blakey's Terms & Conditions. Please read these carefully to ensure they meet with your requirements.

Please note that irrespective of when members of the Expert Witness Institute join the block Professional Indemnity insurance policy, the full annual premium will be payable. As this is a block policy, several restrictions have been put in to place which suit the majority of members. However, if you fall outside these criteria Horner Blakey will be happy to obtain quotes for you individually. Please contact them directly to discuss your requirements.
