Specialty Professional

There are many lines of professional liability that are unique and specialized unto themselves. As such, they can be overlooked by agents and insureds that are unfamiliar with the coverage highlights and how these particular coverages can be used as part of a comprehensive insurance program.

Our job is to guide and advise you on where your clients may benefit in these areas. Don’t leave untapped revenue streams on the table, or worse, neglect to offer your insureds coverages that could be of great help to them in different claim situations. Call us first – we can help.

Tenant Discrimination

Residential & commercial property managers and owners can have holes in GL coverage with 3rd party claims for discrimination by tenants.

Intellectual Property, Copyright & Patent Infringement

Protecting your clients’ Intellectual Property and defending it in court should an infringement occur is expensive. Legal costs and the time involved dealing with these situations can quickly spiral out of control. Any company that manufactures, sells, designs, or supplies a product may unintentionally infringe on another’s intellectual property rights and incur liability. Even if they are only supplying a product that has been designed or manufactured by a third party, they can still be held liable.
