H W Wood Limited offer you a solution to the concerns your COLP and COFA may have about the legal costs of representing and defending themselves at a tribunal.
The cover will pay for defence costs and adverse costs incurred in connection with an inquiry, investigation, disciplinary proceedings, or any other legal proceedings that are instigated against you for breach of professional conduct rules as a solicitor or pursuant to money laundering legislation.
In the field of personal injury there will be numerous changes made which will affect the funding of personal injury cases. These have been brought about by the introduction of the Legal Aid Sentencing & Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, as well as Rules of Court.
Unfortunately, it is still unclear what the final Rules will be which does, to some extent, make it difficult to plan. However, the government propose introducing many of the changes by 1 April and probably the remainder of them some time during the course of 2013.
H. W. Wood Limited are delighted to be the only Professional Indemnity Insurance Broker (or Insurer) at this time to offer all firms who do conveyancing work, a free 12 month subscription to LENDERmonitor’s notification service.
This is a service that Conveyancing solicitors can use when working on a property purchase.
When a property is being bought using a mortgage it is the solicitor’s responsibility to check through the lender’s requirements and ensure that the purchase/property complies with them.
