Howden Solicitors' Market Report - January 2021

Supreme Court, London

In the latest edition of our Solicitors’ Market Report we review the 1 October 2020 renewal season and share our forecast for Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) in 2021.

We also provide a snapshot of recent claims information and highlight the issues that are currently under the PII underwriter’s spotlight. This will provide insight on the issues firms need to focus on before their next renewal.

With cyber crime on the increase, we respond to FAQs regarding cover for cyber incidents under both PII and Cyber Insurance policies.

The Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal is the subject of our final article. We discuss the issue of ‘out of office’ conduct following the outcome of the Beckwith appeal and review data from the Tribunal’s last annual report.
