Attorneys face a number of errors & omissions claims – from administrative errors to allegations of abandoning representation to failing to address the client's needs in any way. In fact, the American Bar Association (ABA) estimates that attorneys will have at least three legal malpractice claims brought against them in the course of their careers.
The RPS Signature Programs Lawyers Professional Liability (LPL) insurance program is designed to provide coverage for claims that arise from "wrongful acts" committed in the rendering of legal services in the lawyer's capacity and generally provides both indemnification coverage and claims expense coverage.
The program is available in all states except AK.
