With the considerable impact that COVID-19 has had on the music, sporting and event industry, and the shutdown of large areas of the media production industry, insurance policies are being tested. Many clients have raised questions about how different parts of their insurance programme will respond to Covid-19 and we are seeing some common themes. We’ve created a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ), which we hope you will find helpful.
Gallagher’s Entertainment & Media team are established specialists in the field of music and live entertainment as well as film, media and sports risks. Our team has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this sector in both insurance and risk management and we insure some of the world’s biggest tours, events, film and TV productions and entertainment risks.
Whilst our UK offices are closed in line with government guidelines, our team continues to operate remotely and work closely with clients to help with their insurance needs. We understand that your company may also be adjusting to a somewhat different way of working, so we promise to do everything we reasonably can to support you during this challenging and uncertain time.
Some of our answers are relatively generic as each policy wording is different. This FAQ document is designed to give high level information; it can’t take account of each of our clients’ particular circumstances or policy terms and conditions, and so if you have specific queries, please contact us directly and we’ll be able to advise.
