The Need For Attorneys’ Professional Liability Coverage

The Need For Attorneys’ Professional Liability Coverage

July 23, 2018 David Lipson

In his HBO comedy special, comedian Chris Rock memorably joked about insurance coverage. It might have been one of Rock's funniest bits from the earlier part of his career. On stage, the comic said, "You need some coverage... Coverage will save your life." Of course, he was talking about life insurance and health insurance, but he very well could have been talking about malpractice insurance for lawyers.

When we hear that scary "M Word" (malpractice), we often think about doctors. However, there are many cases every day in which attorneys find themselves having to deal with lawsuits brought by clients. And most of the time these attorneys never saw it coming. Even if malpractice insurance for attorneys won't save your life in the way that health insurance might, it can save your practice from a catastrophic lawsuit or career-threatening grievance. Thus, it is essential for every lawyer in your law firm to be covered – be they partners, associates, employees, of counsels, independent contractors, full-time, part-time or nearly retired.
