February 11, 2021

Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies recently announced it has expanded the list of states where the company offers its Lawyers Professional Liability product to include Colorado, Kentucky, and Nebraska.

Like other professionals who provide a service, lawyers are at risk for liability exposure. An unintended act, error, or omission while performing the job could impact the outcome of an important lawsuit, cause undue hardship for a client, or result in a malpractice claim against the firm.
