About us

LEGAL & PROFESSIONAL INSURANCE HAS A LONG AND DISTINGUISHED HISTORY in the solicitors’ professional indemnity market.

Our origins lie in the Solicitors Indemnity Fund (SIF), set up by the Law Society to provide compulsory indemnity insurance to the profession and disbanded in 2000 in favour of the current open market. Run-off claims have subsequently been handled by SIF, more recently through its subsidiary specialist company, LP Claims.

In 2010 LP Claims, together with the ‘run-off’ of SIF claims, was acquired by Legal & Professional Insurance, a trading arm of Vision Underwriting, part of Liberty Mutual Group.

LP Claims, now widely recognised as the premier claims handler in the sector, provides a fully integrated service for Legal & Professional Insurance, driving forward our service to our policyholders.
