The primary objective of this new practice is to offer tailored insurance solutions designed to safeguard both company assets and third-party liabilities within the rapidly evolving HealthTech landscape.

This encompasses activities such as software creation, distribution, licensing, development, and integration tailored specifically for these industries.

Among the comprehensive insurance coverages offered by the new practice are protection against property damage, business interruption, terrorism, employers’ liability, and cyber threats. Additionally, liability protection is extended to cover claims related to bodily injury, product and service liability, professional indemnity, intellectual property disputes, and corporate reputational harm. Importantly, all coverage options are customizable, ensuring a tailored approach to meet the unique needs of each client.
