Employment Practices Liability Insurance
Designed to shield law firms from claims related to employment-related issues, including allegations of discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and other workplace disputes. This coverage helps mitigate the costs of legal defense and potential settlements in employment-related lawsuits.
Umbrella Liability Insurance
Serves as an additional layer of protection for law firms. It extends the coverage limits of underlying liability policies, providing extra financial protection in case of large (BI/PD) liability claims that exceed the limits of primary insurance policies. This coverage is invaluable for law firms facing substantial liability risks due to its case load and client profile. (Note: It specifically does not extend to Lawyers Professional Liability claims.)
ERISA Bonds for Benefit / Health and Welfare / Retirement Plans

Safeguards the physical assets of a legal practice, including the office building, furnishings, equipment, and other tangible property. It also covers the contents within the premises, such as computers, furniture, and important documents, in case of damage or loss due to events like fire, theft, or natural disasters.
Workers Compensation Insurance
Coverage provides financial support to employees who sustain work-related injuries or illnesses. This insurance covers medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs, reducing the firm’s liability in the event of workplace accidents and limiting exposure to “sole source” recovery.
Intellectual Property Insurance
Critical for law firms and is different from tangible property. It protects clients against the risks of intellectual property disputes and related legal costs, including patent, trademark, and copyright infringement claims as well as certain first party coverage.
Inland Marine and Fine Arts Insurance
Needed for law firms that possess valuable movable property like artwork, specialized equipment, or valuable documents. It offers protection against damage or theft of these assets, even when they are in transit.

A fundamental coverage for law firms, providing protection against claims of bodily injury, property damage, or personal injury that may occur on the firm’s premises or as a result of its operations. It helps cover legal defense costs and potential settlements or judgments resulting from such claims.
