Defence & Pursuit

Defence & Pursuit

Broad protection against the costs of defending an infringement allegation and enforcing your rights*

Level the playing field, with an IP insurance policy from La Playa – the most comprehensive protection against almost all forms of IP risk (Patent, Design, Copyright and Trade Mark), whether it’s enforcing rights, defending allegations of infringement or IP related contractual disputes.

Imagine having insurance that not only meets the cost of defending an IP infringement action, but also helps you to chase down infringers of your own IP.

La Playa offers a range of market-leading IP insurance solutions that protect your enterprise against the potentially ruinous cost of infringement liability, while also giving you the financial muscle to pursue infringers of your IP.

Coverage features:

  • Comprehensive policy covering Enforcement, Defence & Invalidity disputes
  • Professional fees & expenses and Damages
  • Worldwide cover available
  • Optional extension for enforcement IP related contractual agreements (license, distributor etc.)
  • Aggregate policy limits of up to £50m/$50m
  • Optional extension for Contractual Indemnities to customers and distributors
  • Optional extension for Directors & Officers as additional insured parties (plugging the gap in D&O policies, which often have intellectual property exclusions)
  • Options to extend cover for Open Source infringements & Trade Secrets

Don’t expect your Professional Indemnity, Errors & Omissions or Directors & Officers insurance policies to protect you. These policies usually exclude disputes involving patents and trade secrets. And they won’t help if you’re called upon to indemnify a customer or distributor.
