Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies recently announced it has expanded the list of states the company offers its Architects and Engineers Professional Liability product to include Colorado, Kansas, and Wisconsin. With these three states, the company now offers this line in half the United States.

An unintended error or omission while performing the job could have serious consequences for a business. Due to perceived – or real – negligence, a dissatisfied customer or third-party could pursue litigation, putting a firm’s finances and reputation in danger.
