Biotech & Pharmaceuticals

The biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors operate at a rapid pace, constantly pushing boundaries with innovative approaches. Within the biotech sphere, emphasis is placed on research, accompanied by a host of intricate challenges. These challenges demand advanced equipment and often entail rigorous clinical trials, posing significant risks such as equipment malfunctions, contamination issues, occupational hazards, and the potential for product recalls.

Types of BioTech companies we can insure:

  • Industrial Biotechnology
  • Therapeutics and Diagnostics
  • Biopharma
  • R&D Services
  • Medical Technology

Risks the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries face:

  • Cyber security and information gathered from trials- Cyber insurance would protect against litigation should a claim arise from data being lost or stolen; this is particularly prominent for the biotechnology industry where data on individual patients is likely to be kept.
  • Intellectual property theft of a certain product or process- Intellectual property insurance will cover the cost of litigation should you infringe on intellectual property, or somebody infringes on yours.
  • When testing a new product- Clinical trials insurance, would be necessary to compensate an individual testing the product should a claim arise as a result of injury. This is only relevant to human trials.

Simon Wyndow was fantastic in obtaining indemnity coverage at such short notice and advising me that I will have no premium to pay for any run off cover when I was told otherwise by another provider. He was very re-assuring and knowledgeable.
