Lawyer And Trustee? Your Professional Liability Insurance May Not Be Enough
Professional Liability Insurance for Lawyers and Trustees
As a lawyer, you wear many hats, one of which may be a trustee for clients. As a fiduciary, you’re charged with managing the trust property in a responsible and productive manner, with an obligation to act solely for the benefit of the beneficiaries. But while you’re looking after clients’ trusts, who is looking out for you?
What if you’re accused of mismanaging the trust? You have professional liability insurance (aka professional indemnity insurance) in place, so you assume you’re covered. Professional liability insurance was designed specifically for professionals who provide or advice to their clients — similar to Errors & Omissions (E&O), as it protects against claims for damages to third parties that come about as a result of an act, omission or breach of professional duty.
But consider this: chances are, your professional liability insurance doesn’t cover your personal liability as a trustee. How, then, do you protect yourself while you’re protecting your clients’ trusts? Professional liability insurance for lawyers and trustees from XINSURANCE.
