Allied World offers professional liability insurance to lawyers on admitted and non-admitted basis

Allied World Assurance has revealed (through its US-based Darwin subsidiary) a new program with Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) Facilities, in conjunction with the rollout of Darwin’s standard market Lawyers Professional Liability (LPL) product.

Through Darwin, Allied World provides platforms to offer professional liability insurance to lawyers in a variety of practices, on both an admitted and non-admitted basis. This newly designed admitted policy form incorporates key coverage features and enhancements, tailored to small-and-mid-size law firms. The coverage is supported by Allied World’s experienced claims team and comprehensive risk management services, said the company.

Craig Darling, President of JLT Facilities, said: “This program allows us to leverage the business knowledge of both organizations to offer a total market solution for brokers and their clients.”

JLT would be underwriting on behalf of Darwin on an admitted basis in New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Maryland, Connecticut, Virginia, Georgia and South Carolina.
