Contractor Tax & Legal Protection


Why buy a Larsen Howie Contractor Tax & Legal Protection Insurance policy?

Our Contractor Tax & Legal Protection Insurance has been specially designed for contractors, freelancers and consultants to provide them with professional representation for both the defence and pursuit of commercial and personal claims, including appeals. The policy reacts by covering the legal costs involved in a case, which can include solicitors and barristers’ fees, court costs, experts’ fees and attendance expenses.  

Every business owner needs to ensure that they are protected against the risk of having to defend or pursue a legal dispute with a third party. With ever-increasing legal fees for defending or pursuing a case through the UK courts, our Contractor Legal Protection affords you peace of mind that expensive solicitor fees are covered for a range of common disputes.
