Innocent Party Insurance

Mandatory Innocent Party Coverage (associations, partnerships and LAW CORPORATIONS with more than one LAWYER)

 

Innocent Party Coverage protects members of the public - and thereby you - against the dishonest, fraudulent, criminal, or malicious acts or omissions of present or former partners, associates, employed LAWYERS and firm EMPLOYEE(S). The increased incidence of fraud-related claims also highlights the benefits of Innocent Party Coverage.

Eligibility

Minimum level Innocent Party coverage is required for all LAWYERS practising in association, partnership (including general, MULTI-DISCIPLINE AND/OR COMBINED LICENSEE PARTNERSHIPS and LLP partnerships) or a LAW CORPORATION (with more than one LAWYER).

Coverage

Coverage sublimit: $250,000 per claim/in the aggregate applicable to claim expenses, indemnity payments and/or costs of repairs. Note that one claim with substantial defence costs would quickly erode the amount of funds available for indemnity.

This $250,000 sublimit coverage is provided within the primary insurance program coverage limits, and not in addition to the $1 million/$2 million coverage in place under the mandatory insurance program.

Premium $250 per insured LAWYER per POLICY PERIOD
