Why do I need Lawyers’ Professional Liability insurance?
Liability coverage helps protect law firms from costly malpractice lawsuits.  Law firms that do not carry this coverage leave themselves open to a host of lawsuit possibilities, the most common being:
  • Malpractice (a former client unhappy with the service or judgments they received).
  • Suits that may arise out of a former client’s assertion that the bill is too high, unjust or, more commonly, overdue.

I already have liability insurance.  Why consider a OneBeacon plan?
If you already have coverage, it’s advisable that you look at two key features of our plan: Lateral Hire Coverage and Special Benefits for Sole Practitioners.
 
With Lateral Hire Coverage, attorneys who join your firm will be covered for their prior acts, provided 1) they meet the terms and conditions of the policy and are subject to underwriting approval; and 2) have maintained continuous claims-made coverage while in practice.  (This coverage may be excluded from the policy upon your firm’s written request.)
 
And Special Benefits for Sole Practitioners include the following:
• Part-Time Program
• Extended Reporting Period
• Retiree Benefit
• New Attorney Discount

What is a potential claim?
A potential claim is any act, error, omission, circumstance, or personal injury that might reasonably be expected to give rise to a claim against any insured under the policy; or any breach of duty to a client or third party that has not resulted in a claim against an insured.

What is a claim?
A claim is a demand made upon any insured for loss, including, but not limited to, service of suit or institution of arbitration proceedings or administrative proceedings against any insured.

What is Extended Reporting Period or “Tail” coverage?
Extended Reporting Periods are used to provide coverage for claims that may be reported after the end of a claims-made policy period.  The option to extend the reporting period does not extend the policy period.  The ERP cannot be renewed or extended.
