A Message from the NYSBA

The NYSBA Committee on Insurance Programs is focused on ensuring that our members have access to comprehensive and competitive insurance solutions.

Towards that end, with the assistance of USI Affinity, we assess the competitive landscape and measure our existing programs against what is available in the marketplace.

Following an extensive review of the market, the NYSBA has chosen to endorse CNA for our Lawyers’ Professional Liability program.

Our selection of CNA was based on the following criteria:

  • CNA proved willing to customize their coverage for our members, making it one of the broadest policy forms available in NY today;
  • CNA enjoys the endorsement of many major bar associations and is one of the largest Lawyers’ Professional Liability program carriers in the market;
  • Underwriting and pricing guidelines were flexible to accommodate the majority of our members’ needs.
  • The renewal process, especially during this change of endorsement, would be simplified, ensuring that you have no gaps in coverage if you follow the renewal guidelines.

Keep in mind that the value of the NYSBA endorsement is that any product or rate changes are proposed to the NYSBA Committee on Insurance Programs and vetted by that Committee prior to filing. We provide you with one additional -- and substantial -- pair of eyes on your insurance programs to ensure you have access to the best possible coverage.

I am confident you will find the case for CNA as compelling as I did. I look forward to your continued participation in the NYSBA program.

Marian Rice
Chair, Committee on Association Insurance Programs
