Good Signs to Look For When Choosing a Professional Liability Insurance Company

In an effort to provide a bit of relief, members of the Lawyer’s Professional Liability Committee put their collective heads together to come up with a list of 17 good signs to look for.* They reflect trends and issues in professional liability insurance that the Committee has encountered and/or addressed over the last several years. In an effort to ensure this information is disseminated to the members in a clear and concise way that is both practical and convenient, the Committee would like to introduce its new monthly tip column “Good Signs to Look for When Choosing a Professional Liability Insurance Company.” The Column, originally published in the Bar Bulletin on a monthly basis, highlights the Committee’s best practices list along with a brief explanation of each.
