though there was no negligence (i.e. breach of the Trade
Practices Act).

An Engineers PI policy is designed to protect the company’s
assets (of larger forms) or the personal assets of a sole

in relation to an act, error or omission committed by the
professional during the conduct of their professional business
activities. It also covers the costs and expenses of defending
