Tax investigations - insurance


I'm just curious about this, not in a position where a client has an investigation coming up.

But if I had such a client, I doubt I'd have the experience to handle anything other than a simple tax office review.  A serious investigation would probably be beyond my expertise, if I was intending to give the client the best service etc.

So is it usual to recommend all new clients to purchase fee insurance, etc.  And then push them in the direction of a specialist should such a situation arise?  Or should I be expected to spot a likely 'potential investigation' client from the start and then recommend the fee insurance?

Who sells fee insurance?

Sorry if the questions sound a bit stupid.
