Media and Production Sector

Media, Marketing and Production companies need professional indemnity

Traditionally, professional indemnity has been the domain of construction and legal professions; architects, engineers, solicitors, financial institutions, etc; protecting them against errors or omissions in the advice and consultation they provide.

In recent years, the media and production industries have grown, exponentially, to a point now where there is a huge market for advertising, film, broadcast and corporate events. As a result, we now find that advertising agencies, production companies, post-production houses and event organisers all have a responsibility to uphold which, when things go wrong, can lead to large financial losses.

Why choose Towergate Professional Indemnity

Towergate Professional Indemnity has a deep understanding of the media market and work closely with our clients to secure the most comprehensive professional indemnity policies; protecting against the sometimes intangible losses that relate to the media industry. We also work closely with some of the leading insurers in the media market, providing bespoke services for each of our clients.

We understand that it can sometimes be frustrating to explain the variety of activities your business may be involved in and so, with personal experience in the media industry, we can directly relate to the way our clients work on a day-to-day basis. This helps us to secure the best premiums, with cover that really looks at the problems from all angles, allowing our clients to get on with their work with peace of mind and security.
