How can I best protect my business?

Professional Liability Coverage is vital for proper risk management of A&E design firms. In addition to proper coverage, follow these guidelines to prevent the most common claims:
  1. Client Selection – Don’t let dollar signs rule your instincts. Clients involved in prior lawsuits or wanting to bend the rules should be avoided. Many insureds remember the warning signs or gut feelings they initially felt from a client after a claim is filed.

  2. Always have a signed contract specifying at least the basic terms of your services and payment.  

  3. Be wary of clients that are late or refusing to provide payment. Many claims get filed as a means to refuse payment for your services. Sometimes writing off a bad debt and client will save you the hassle of defending a frivolous claim.  

  4. Document everything and retain your records. 

  5. Stick to the terms of your contract especially with regards to billing your client.
