How to Issue

You have 3 options when it comes to issuing legal indemnity insurance with GCS: ‘Online’, ‘Pack’ or ‘Bespoke’.

If you want to issue one of our legal indemnity insurance policies by yourself and without referring to us then our speedy ‘Online’ system and/or insurance ‘Pack’ is for you – these are collectively known as ‘Instant Issue’. Cover can start immediately.

Our ‘Bespoke’ service is available if you are unable to issue directly from our ‘Online’ or ‘Pack’ because the risk does not meet the relevant criteria or if the policy cover your client requires is not listed Online or in the Pack.

Our experienced and friendly underwriters are always ready to help.
