Markel Insurance

Legal expenses insurance for medical professionals

Markel provides market-leading before the event (BTE) legal expenses insurance (LEI) for medical professionals and has deep knowledge of this complex product niche. Our insurance includes cover for fitness to practice complaints and criminal prosecutions.

£100,000 worth of legal expenses for any one claim is available to represent clients in a number of fitness to practice scenarios: an initial response, an interim order hearing, a full medical practitioner’s tribunal hearing and review hearings.

Where criminal prosecutions are a possibility, the policy will again provide up to £100,000 worth of legal expenses for any one claim where there is a reasonably possibility of acquittal or significantly reducing a sentence or penalty.
