Preparing for the unexpected with specialist crisis management support

At a time when criminals are adapting their methods, supply chains are becoming more complex and a brand’s reputation can hang on a single tweet, emergency situations can develop rapidly. Often, businesses are forced to respond at a moment’s notice and in areas that are outside their expertise. In light of all these factors, it’s clear that traditional insurance solutions do not provide the broad and responsive cover that businesses now require.

Lockton’s experienced advisors will act as your strategic partners, working closely with you to understand the pressures that you are dealing with, in order to manage your specific exposures.

Our specialist in-house Political Violence, Special Contingency and Product Recall teams have deep knowledge and expertise in this area and they have developed innovative methods of presenting your crisis risk to insurers. As a result, we are able to deliver bespoke insurance solutions, formulated to manage the precise risks that your organisation is likely to face.
