The product covers Professional Indemnity, Medical Malpractice, General Liability and at the option of the client and underwriting criteria can include Products Liability, Fidelity Guarantee and Employment Practice Liability. Leonie is the exclusive  broker on this product and takes a personal interest in all her clients. With the help of Dr. Viljoen and the dedicated claims department at Etana, Leonie assists her clients in the claims process from the initial notification, through to providing legal  support to clients on complaints lodged with the South African Veterinary Council and civil litigation matters, to ensure a win win situation for all involved.
