La Playa
Company profile:

La Playa Science & Technology is a division of La Playa Limited, an award winning insurance broker with an enviable reputation for its dynamic approach and distinctive work in managing risk for both commercial and private clients across the UK.

Our innovative insurance-based services are designed to factor insurable risk out of investment in technology and innovation whether you're an inventor, investor, entrepreneur, mentor or otherwise engaged in this field.

We serve start-up, small & medium-sized organisations operating in Information Technology, Communications Technology, Electronics, Life Sciences, Nanotechnology & Cleantech.

Main products and services:

We provide independent advice, consultancy and insurance solutions in the following areas:

  • Asset Protection & Cover for R&D activities
  • Consequential Losses
  • Intellectual Property
  • Environmental Liability
  • Employers' Liability
  • Crisis Management & Disaster Recovery
  • Public & Products Liability
  • Directors' & Officers' Liability
  • Professional Liability
  • Equipment Breakdown

Collaborations Sought:

Where no off-the-shelf insurance solutions exist for new or disruptive technologies, we adopt a collaborative approach towards the development of tailored insurance products and insurance-backed solutions that help disruptive science entrepreneurs obtain the insurance protection their business needs. We also work with a broad range of people and organisations involved in new technology start-ups, complementing their business support programmes with insurance and risk management clinics.
