Insurance for Marketing and Advertising Agencies

Marketing and advertising agencies face unique and often complex risks. A breach of licence, a misinterpreted brief or an unintentional breach of a written contract. Any loss or damage can have a significant impact on your earnings and reputation, and if a client or third party is affected they could take legal action. Contractually you may also be required by your client to have insurance.

A copyright claim, comparative advertising statute or a breach of an image licence.

The cover we provide, isn’t just about defending you against claims from clients or third parties. It’s the opposite. Finding ways to resolve a problem without an expensive legal fight. Minimising the impact on your client and hopefully retaining the client relationship going forward. Sometimes you spot problems just in time. If you have helped a client run a campaign and you have realised you have used the wrong logo or colour. The insurance we provide includes rectification costs cover. i.e. “we will pay any reasonable and necessary costs to rectify that error”.

You might be surprised, but many professional indemnity insurance policies for advertising agencies on the market will not cover your key risks. Risks such as; breach of licence, unintentional breach of a written contract or cover for your websites content, are all too often not covered. Insurance wordings are complicated.
