Where can I find an application for coverage?

Easy. Click here. Take a look at our Application Page and pick up the right application for your firm. If your firms billings are less than $1,000,000, then choose the Small Firm Application. If your firms billings equal more than $1,000,000, then choose the Large Firm Application.

How soon does my coverage start after I apply?

There is no simple answer. How quick your coverage begins, depends on many different factors, including the size of your company; the number of claims and whether or not you already have liability coverage with another agency. But one thing is for sure, we will work to make sure that your coverage begins ASAP. We leverage the latest industry resources to provide you with the coverage, risk management and contract review tailored to your practice. See for yourself. Give us a call.

What is a “Claims Made” Policy?

In a claims-made policy, coverage is triggered by the date the insured first became aware of the possibility of a claim and notified the insurer of such knowledge. The insurance policy in force on the date the insured gained such awareness is the one which responds to the claim.

I already have a policy. What can you do for me?

With our decades of experience, its worth letting us review your present coverage. We stay ahead of the latest requirements and standards in your industry, and thus, can deliver the best mix of coverage and value. Contact us here for more information.
