 Giles Insurance Brokers Ltd

for commercial, personal and specialist insurance in the North East (including Durham)

Established in Scotland in 1967, Giles has expanded rapidly in recent years to become one of the top independent insurance brokers in the UK.



We offer access to a wide range of insurance products from some of the UK's leading insurers, tailoring our search to help protect your business from the risks of trading, whether you are a sole trader or a large, multinational organisation.





These risks can include, but are not limited to, business interruption, directors & officers, employers liability, products liability, property insurance and public liability.





Our experience and knowledge means we know these industries and the issues they face, and can source a package of cover that a standard policy may not provide.





As well as providing access to a wide range of cover to protect you and your business, we also offer access to a range of business advisory services including guidance on health & safety and employment law, and business continuity planning.
