As a solo practitioner or small law firm, preparing for the unexpected isn't simply a good idea — it's critical if you want to keep up with the competition and grow your practice. While keeping pace, you also want to ensure that you safeguard your company's future. To address your challenges, you need a broad range of property and liability coverages such as building, business income, business personal property, computer equipment, accounts receivable, money and securities, and more.
That's why we created CNA Connect® with Lawyers Choice Endorsement for law practices like yours. CNA Connect offers small businesses broad and relevant protection, with customized endorsements that offer increased deductible options and a wide range of limit options. CNA Connect offers more coverage and higher limits on a single policy, with the flexibility to exclude coverages to reduce premiums and the ability to tailor coverages to meet your specific needs. The Lawyers Choice Endorsement offers a wide range of coverage extensions or enhancements, including a Business Income and Extra Expense coverage extension with an option that provides for the payment of covered business income loss on a billable hours basis if you're forced to close your practice for a few days due to loss of or damage to covered property at your premises resulting from a covered cause of loss. The Lawyers Choice Endorsement also addresses coverages related to computer fraud and electronic data processing equipment and the loss of your valuable papers and records, including the cost to research, replace or restore lost information contained on such papers or records, such as client files.
Other optional endorsements include the Building Owners Choice Endorsement, which provides coverage for building owners who rent to other businesses, and the Building Owners Eco Choice Endorsement which covers the reasonable additional costs to repair or replace the damaged, covered property with similar property for the same purposes, but that is qualified as "green."
