Unique Placements

For law firms that fall outside of the program, we have several hard-to-place lawyers professional liability facilities. Chubb Insurance, Travelers Insurance Group, and Westport/SwissRE are just some of the specialty insurance carriers we work with.

We utilize a step-by-step placement process to assist the law firm with completion of the proper application and supporting documentation to achieve competitive coverage terms. We provide feedback and communicate with the firm through the process to provide the best placement and coverage selections.

Commercial Insurance Services

We can also place and service your entire commercial insurance needs. We utilized Hartford and Travelers among others for the following coverage options:

  • Office Package
  • Umbrella
  • Workers Compensation
  • Crime and Fiduciary Policies
  • Appeal Bonds
  • Employment Practice Liability
  • Cyber Risk

Periodically, firms are recommended to review their commercial insurance programs to ensure that limits are sufficient and to update what exposures have changes. In addition, as a new exposure emerges (such as cyber and data breach risks), a law firm should evaluate new lines of coverage to stay protected.
