Willis Towers Watson

Willis Towers Watson is delighted to have been reappointed as a Preferred Broker to the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE)
This enables us to continue the long relationship we have enjoyed with both the ACE and its members.

The reappointment of Willis Towers Watson was made by the ACE after a rigorous and competitive exercise necessary to ensure the continued delivery of a level of capabilities and expertise needed from its Panel of Broker Firms.
What insurance cover should an organisation in this sector require/consider?
We understand the complex risks facing engineers and mistakes can be costly and seriously damage a business' reputation.

Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) is a compulsory requirement of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) as well as a range of other professional bodies, including the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IME).

PII provides insurance cover for legal costs and expenses in defending a claim, and any compensation or costs that may subsequently be awarded.

As one of the approved panel brokers for ACE members, Willis Towers Watson can offer significantly wider cover than the recommended minimum terms and conditions and, if required, include different aspects of ACE members' services. Some typical additions can include the following:
  • Cover for cost of mitigation of loss if work is undertaken on a Design and Build basis
  • Joint Ventures
  • Cover for own in-house costs such as court attendance
  • Innocent non-disclosure provisions
  • Cover in the event that the ACE member's contracts are novated
  • The Limit of Indemnity to apply to each claim separately
  • Defence Costs and Expenses payable in addition to the Limit of Indemnity
In addition to this, organisations should also consider:
  • Directors & Officers Liability Insurance
  • Outside Board Insurance
  • Employment Practices Liability Insurance
  • Cyber Liability Insurance
  • Trustees Liability Insurance
  • Environmental Insurance
Note: Some of these insurances are compulsory and are driven by local legislation governing the regulation of Legal Practices. >> Willis Towers Watson services
