Games, Software, and Apps Insurance

Games, software and apps businesses face some very specific and global risks - both on- and offline. La Playa is an insurance specialist for media and digital businesses, helping games software and publishing businesses as they scale from start-up to IPO. We understand the risks and pressures you face, we speak your language, and we'll help protect your business with expert risk management advice and a portfolio of insurance designed around your specific MO.

What if…

  • Your app technology fails, leaving users and customers out of pocket?
  • In-app purchase functions prompt an investigation by regulators?
  • Data is breached, leading to privacy claims?

Games, Software, and Apps Insurance Cover can include...

  • IP Protection: covering both defence and pursuit costs
  • Cyber Security: protecting you from hack attacks, DoS, ransomware, data breaches and more
  • Public, product, and professional liabilities
  • Crisis Management & Disaster Recovery: to speed recovery from an interruption and minimise its impact on your bottom line
  • Contingency cover around new product launches and key events, covering unrecoverable expenses and committed costs

We can also help you with:

  • Employee benefits: helping you to attract and retain top talent, as well as helping with Key Person insurance for your rock stars and succession planning for your senior team
  • M&A: Insurance due diligence services around acquisition targets
  • Wealth management services for high earners/board of directors
  • Preparing for GDPR: the new EU General Data Protection Regulation will be replacing the Data Protection Act - with profound implications for businesses trading with Europe.

“These guys are the only insurance people I will tolerate speaking to these days, as they are actual humans (with both a brain and a heart!) and offer very good packages too - they answer calls and emails promptly and when I had an issue recently with my bank were very helpful to get it fixed.”

George, La Playa business client

Advice You Can Trust

…from an expert who understands you

Tech-based business is 24/7, global and borderless, exposing you to new risks and liabilities - often in unfamiliar places. As the law struggles to keep pace with technology, insurance can provide a real safety net if you fall foul of changing legislation.

  • Specialist insurance for media and digital businesses
  • Independent professional advice
  • Relationship-based service: right beside you when you make a claim
  • “Can do” culture
  • Seamless insurance across UK and US

Are we right for each other?

What sets us apart is the advice we offer: we really know our stuff. We listen, we analyse, we advise you on how to eliminate or mitigate your risk, and how to protect yourself against what remains. We may not be the cheapest option – so if an off-the-shelf policy and call centre queues work for you, be our guest. But if you need some advice on identifying your risk areas, how to structure your insurance most efficiently and effectively, and how to adapt it to the changing dynamics of your work or life – with hand-holding and close attention to detail - you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the family!
