Legal Malpractice / Attorney Professional Liability
Legal Malpractice Insurance – also known as Attorney Professional Liability Insurance provides necessary insurance coverage for negligence claims made against a lawyer.
Most Attorney Professional Liability policies are written on a “Claims Made” basis; meaning that as your trusted insurance agency, we have agreed to cover claims that are made against you, as a lawyer, during the term of your legal liability insurance policy.
Legal liability policies typically limit the amount that the insurance company can be required to pay, on each claim, as well as the total amount that the insurance company can be required to pay on all claims made against the lawyer during the term of your Attorney Malpractice Insurance policy. The maximum amount of coverage provided by legal liability coverage is referred to as the "limits" of the policy.
