Markel Insurance

Legal expenses insurance for the care and charity sector

As one of the UK’s leading insurers for care and charity organisations, Markel has developed a specialist legal expenses policy tailored to the needs of this sector.

We support organisations operating across the full spectrum of services, including charitable and commercial concerns providing care, support and advice for disadvantaged, elderly or vulnerable people.

With the sector facing a legal minefield across employment, health & safety, regulatory and commercial law, our insurance provides bespoke cover benefits and access to solicitors who work exclusively on care employment and regulatory law.

More than just insurance cover

To enhance their insurance cover policyholders receive complimentary access to our in-house legal and tax helplines. This includes ReCap, a solution designed to help policyholders reclaim capital allowances on care and nursing homes from HMRC.

As part of these added-value services, clients can also access Markel Law Hub, a premier online employment, health & safety and business law legal information portal created by our specialist solicitors. Up-to-date content includes precedent legal documents, fact sheets and legal newsletters.
