Specialist guidance

We recognised that a standard office policy was far from adequate to fulfil the specific interests of barristers chambers.

So, we researched the market, consulted with many heads of chambers and established an insurance policy designed by barristers, for barristers.

We first launched our bespoke Barristers Chambers package over twenty years ago and have worked hard to continuously improve it, ensuring it provides comprehensive cover for chambers both large and small.

Case study

In the early hours of a Sunday morning, Clear received a call from Chambers advising that a substantial fire at their premises was being attended to by the fire brigade. Within two hours we were on site to support our client during this distressing time, and also to begin evaluating the extent of their loss. We arranged for a loss adjuster to attend first thing on the Monday morning, and immediately started the process of sourcing a temporary, alternative office premises.

By the Tuesday afternoon negotiations had commenced, with the landlord of a local office and agreement was reached to relocate the business from the following Monday. In order to meet with our client's requirements, Clear then obtained an emergency claim payment in order to modify the new premises in addition to the hire of computer and communication equipment. Just one week later our client was back up and running to the same capacity as prior to the fire.

Reinstatement of the damaged Chambers took 5 months, and throughout the entire process our client did not suffer any financial interruption to their business as a result of Clear's swift response and support.
