Controlling Costs of Legal Malpractice Insurance

Malpractice insurance is a major expense for most law firms, and being a savvy buyer is crucial to managing that expense intelligently. The ability to do so, however, depends on the decisions made in evaluating and purchasing insurance, and managing the relationship. With a multitude of carriers, coverage options, and pricing models, the landscape can be a confusing morass of apples to oranges comparisons offering little guidance to the inexperienced. This on-demand webinar helps decision makers effectively evaluate options, maximize benefits, minimize risk, and ultimately reduce malpractice insurance costs.
