Program Info:

The purpose of this program is to discuss the financial exposure that may exist when professional liability coverage is jeopardized through an inadvertent oversight or unexpected consequence of an attorney-policyholder’s actions.


This program provides an in-depth examination of critical areas of concern and litigation within the lawyer’s professional liability policy. This seminar is designed to provide a review of the policy for the benefit of a policyholder.


This seminar is not designed as a comprehensive review for purposes of insurance coverage litigation. Rather, it is intended to provide a general discussion for non-insurance coverage attorneys.
