How to apply

By its very nature intellectual property is unique. Every application is different and requires individual review and assessment.

First you need to complete our proposal form and provide supporting information. From this we should be able to provide you with a very rough indication of price within a few days. If we need further information at this stage we shall contact you.

If you want to proceed with the application we will ask the insurer to provide a more formal quote within 10 days. If your risk is particularly unusual, or your IP portfolio is larger than one or two IP rights, this may take up to 14 days.

Once you have accepted the quote and paid the premium (either in full or by entering a finance arrangement) the policy can begin. The whole process should not take longer than two to three weeks.

We understand that your application may contain confidential information and we are happy to enter into a confidentiality agreement prior to receiving it.

If you would like to speak with us about this process please call the team, we are here to help.
