Robert is the Managing Partner of a very successful five-lawyer firm that has been in business for over thirty years. In that time, Robert’s firm has built up a substantial reputation that is second to none in the local community… and then “it” happened. Robert received calls from two of the firm’s top clients on the same day – they had both been the victims of identity fraud. At first Robert was baffled and frankly insulted that they would blame him, as his firm has state of the art firewalls protecting their computer systems. “How does this happen and why blame us,” he thought. Then he remembered that one of the associates at the firm had lost his tablet a few weeks ago in a taxi when he was taking a taxi back to the firm.
Cyber Liability and Data Breach protect attorneys and law firms from any type of occurrence where clients or employees information becomes compromised. This includes third party damages and defense costs.
A lawyer and law firm’s liability is much great than malpractice exposure. Cyber liability, car accidents by employees in the course of employment, discrimination lawsuits – these are just a few areas where lawyers and firms face potential exposure to liability. In this course, Michael Carroll will teach you how to protect you and your firm against these potential risks. Michael mainly discusses data breach insurance, cyber liability, office business insurance, hired and non-owned auto coverage and the grisly gremlins of insurance exclusion (earthquakes, floods, harassment, discrimination & termination) and malpractice liability & coverage.
