Session 4A: Insurance Tips + Ethics

The course will explain what is covered by Professional Liability Insurance and how it functions in conjunction with your General Liability Insurance coverage. What major insurance needs are NOT covered by Professional Liability and how a firm needs to plan for risks such as Cyber Liability and Cyber Crime. There will be a discussion on how Design Firms and using basic services contracts can limit the severity and scope of claim. How you need to review client contracts for insurability. Will discuss the role of Limitation of Liability forms. Will discuss other insurance needs of firms such as Workers Compensation, Equipment coverage, Non Owned Auto and other miscellaneous coverages. There will be a discussion of how you need to structure your Professional Liability to handle your eventual retirement. The course will be highly interactive so come with your insurance questions.
