An Overview of Commercial Liability insurance

Friday, 18 March 2022

This webinar looks at providing an overview of the essential insurance covers of employers liability, public liability and products liability, what these policies cover and how a client could become legally liable.

The presentation will be provided by Alan Chandler, one of the most popular presenters in the UK, and Alan will in his usual plain English style look to gain a full understanding of liability insurance and why current limits of indemnity may no longer be enough.
