While no two businesses are alike, every business has an exposure to liability. Some risk the liability of a customer being injured on their premises. Others may risk a product malfunction interrupting business operations. With decades of experience and a broad risk appetite, AXIS can offer our general liability insurance for many different kinds of standard, niche and specialist businesses in the U.K., as well as in select international locations. Working closely with brokers to identify their client's exposures, we can then offer solutions to meet their unique and specific needs. Along with primary insurance, scheme-based coverage is available. We also offer excess coverage and have capacity for facultative reinsurance agreements. In the event of a claim, AXIS has a large international database of expert witnesses and specialist lawyers and loss adjusters from which to draw.
