Require Indemnity Insurance?
Am I required to have Indemnity Insurance?
At present, it is not a regulatory requirement for individual members to hold indemnity insurance.
Members who work in a solicitors firm or in-house will find that your company or firm will have indemnity insurance, as required under the Solicitors Indemnity Rules.
For members in independent practice providing non-reserved legal activities, it is not compulsory to have indemnity insurance. However, we strongly recommend that an appropriate policy is in place. In the absence of such insurance you may be personally liable if a claim is made against you. It would be considered good practice for such members to have regard to the CILEx Professional Indemnity Insurance Rules (which you can access here).
