Insurance designed for professional services

Our robust and specialized coverages provide protection for specific professions that other policies or carriers may not insure in the event of financial, reputational or economic loss.

Professional liability (E&O)

The professional liability product is designed to protect professionals whose business decisions may lead to errors, omissions, neglect or breach of duty while providing services resulting in third party claims.

Umbrella and excess liability

Excess and umbrella liability insurance provides an additional layer of protection over primary insurance coverage and can be tailored to meet the needs of businesses of any size or complexity.

Management liability (D&O)

The management liability product is designed to protect an organization’s leadership for damages caused by their decisions that result in harm to the organization's employees, shareholders, community and investors.

Why is insurance for professional services important?

Those that own, operate and work in professional services are exposed to ever-evolving risks and are often held to a high standard for their work. Professionals can be vulnerable to exposures specific to their field that are not covered within a general liability policy.
