There are many factors that can contribute to law firms being more or less attractive to admitted insurance carriers. The good news is you can control some of them. Stephen Dimiceli is an agent who is well-versed in attorney malpractice insurance. He sat down for an interview and talked through how attorneys can navigate their way back to the admitted market after having been placed in the non-admitted (surplus lines) market.
Malpractice claims are bad news. They can make you less attractive to underwriters, raise your insurance premiums, hurt your professional reputation, and – in some cases – can even create a dust-up with the state bar. With so much on the line, it makes sense to do everything you can to avoid receiving a malpractice suit.
