Infringement Defence

Critical protection against allegations of IP infringement

La Playa offers a range of market-leading IP insurance solutions that protect your enterprise against the potentially ruinous cost of infringement liability.

For customers in the UK, Europe or the USA we provide insurance policies that cover the legal fees and damages incurred in defending allegations of infringement - including patent, trademark, copyright, design right, domain name or other intellectual property rights.

Coverage features:

  • Legal costs and damages for IP infringement actions (including Patent)
  • Worldwide cover available
  • Aggregate policy limits of up to £50m/$50m
  • Optional extension for Contractual Indemnities to customers and distributors
  • Optional extension for Directors & Officers as additional insured parties (plugging the gap in D&O policies, which often have intellectual property exclusions)
  • Options to extend cover for Open Source infringements & Trade Secrets

Don’t expect your Professional Indemnity, Errors & Omissions or Directors & Officers insurance policies to protect you. These policies usually exclude disputes involving patents and trade secrets. And they won’t help if you’re called upon to indemnify a customer or distributor.
