Law Claims 

Law Claims in conjunction with Lawguard Management Pty Ltd manages the Professional Indemnity Insurance Scheme for South Australian legal practitioners. In addition to handling professional negligence claims against practitioners Law Claims also offers a Risk Management Program aimed at reducing the risk of claims.

The aims of Law Claims are to:
  • maintain confidentiality and the professional reputation of the practitioner;
  • provide proactive support and advice on claims and potential claims management to practitioners;
  • facilitate prompt resolution of claims against legal practitioners with fairness and integrity;
  • reject unmeritorious claims and provide strong defence where such claims continue;
  • encourage legal practitioners to embrace best practice and risk management and provide programs and resources to reduce the incidence of claims; minimise the cost of Legal Professional Indemnity Insurance.
The Law Society of South Australia is not licensed under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) in relation to the operation of the SA Professional Indemnity Insurance Scheme, and the Scheme is not registered under the Insurance Act 1973 (Cth).  The Australian Securities and Investments Commission has granted to the Society an Exemption from paragraphs 601QA(1)(a), 911A(2)(1), 992b(1)(a) and 1020F(1)(a) of the Corporations Act 2001.
