Miscellaneous professional liability 

Protection for errors and omissions  

From advertising agencies to consultants, professional service providers know their clients rely on them for accurate advice and quality work that is delivered on time. But with increased client expectations and burgeoning jury awards or settlements, the legal, financial, and reputational risks facing professional service providers are growing, too.  

Our miscellaneous liability insurance solutions from Ironshore help protect professional service providers and their employees from claims alleging wrongful acts, errors, or omissions in the course of their work. 

A protective partnership 

Solutions for complex risks  

Across industries and services provided, third-party claim of faulty work or incorrect advice can damage both finances and reputation. Our miscellaneous professional liability solutions provide important protection for these exposures.  

Key coverage highlights:

Expertise that delivers   

Professional service providers work in their clients’ best interests, but even the most careful professional can make a mistake – and, of course, an unsatisfied client can make a claim of negligence even if you’re not at fault.  

We understand the challenges you face and bring a wealth of experience to every policy. Our dedicated underwriters and claims professionals team up to stay on top of current loss trends and risk scenarios, including: 

  • Mistakes and oversights 
  • Failure to deliver contracted services 
  • Missed deadlines 
  • Other negligent or wrongful acts 

And we combine this expertise with a customer-centric service approach to meet your company’s needs. If issues arise, count on us to help protect your firm and its employees, finances, and reputation.
