WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE POLICY?
All law firms could potentially experience a crisis event that will have a material adverse effect upon their reputation. Crisis events can be a wrongful act; death departure or debilitating illness of a principal; potential dissolution; incident of workplace violence or really an event that will adversely affect the firm’s reputation.
Crisis event coverage takes care of the cost of consulting with a public relations firm in response to a crisis event. Disastrous situations happen there is nothing you can fully do to prevent them, but you can minimize the damage they cause through professional liability insurance.
