USI Affinity and the District of Columbia Bar are excited to announce a series of enhancements to the D.C. Bar Lawyers’ Professional Liability Insurance Program, including a 5% Credit on Lawyers’ Professional Liability (LPL) Insurance premiums for being a D.C. Bar member. The D.C. Bar Lawyers’ Professional Liability Insurance Program is administered by USI Affinity, the D.C. Bar’s endorsed broker and a national leader in protecting the legal profession, and is available to attorneys in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. USI Affinity insures more than 35,000 attorneys nationwide and is the endorsed insurance administrator and partner for more than 30 state and local bar associations.
The program’s new 5% Member Credit will be applied to a law firm’s LPL premium for each attorney in the firm that is a D.C. Bar member. Other enhancements include the addition of coverage for Privacy Breach Investigation ($20,000 per policy period) and Network Security Breach coverage ($25,000 per policy period), Subpoena Assistance Coverage ($25,000 per policy period) and a broadened definition of legal services to include expert witness, government advisor or lobbyist.
“As the D.C. Bar’s partner on their Lawyers’ Professional Liability Insurance Program, we’re always looking for ways to improve the program,” said Mike Mooney, Vice President of Bar Association Programs for USI Affinity. “These enhancements are excellent additions to our very strong coverage for D.C. metro area firms. And the Bar’s LPL Program is already very competitively priced, so this additional 5% is great news. For a $5,000 premium, that 5% member credit gives you a savings of $250, which almost covers the cost of your D.C. Bar membership.”
The D.C. Bar Lawyers’ Professional Liability Insurance program has broad coverage and policy features designed to cover a variety of firm sizes, with limits of liability up to $10 million available for qualified firms. It is underwritten by an insurance carrier rated “A” (Excellent) FSC “X” by A.M. Best.
