DASLawAssist 200Leading legal expenses insurer DAS has partnered with Paragon International Insurance Brokers to provide legal protection for its policy for surgical professionals.

Paragon currently offers the policy to ten insurance indemnity schemes, catering for a number of surgical specialties:

  • The ISIS Indemnity Scheme (incorporating Orthopaedic, Spinal and Neurosurgeons).
  • The ISISIS Group (incorporating Plastic, Ophthalmic, General, ENT, Gynaecological and Urological surgeons).
  • SEMPRIS (Sports and Exercise Medicine Professionals Indemnity Scheme, an appointed representative of Health Partners Europe Limited).

The mandatory cover that DAS supplies within the policy includes General Medical Council disciplinary hearings, contract disputes, personal injury, property protection, tax protection, legal defence and access to the DAS legal advice helpline.

Darren Weekes, UK Broker Sales Manager at DAS UK Group, said: “Providing legal protection for these insurance indemnity schemes helps medical practitioners minimise the risks of claims being made which other indemnity insurance may not cover. We look forward to working closely with Paragon to deliver the high quality product and service their customers expect.”

Ian Redbourn, Head of Healthcare at Paragon International Insurance Brokers, said: “At Paragon we provide medical professionals with the level of insurance cover that allows them to continue to practice medicine in a way that meets the needs of their patients. Partnering with DAS to provide the legal protection within the policy helps to give our customers further peace of mind against a range of legal issues that they may face.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
