Join us to discuss Professional Liability: Six Basic Principles Discussed in Three Recent Cases

Professional Liability is different from General Liability. Whether you’re placing a risk or handling a claim, here are six basic principles that you need to know about Professional Liability.

1. Understand the difference between CGL and Professional Liability policies.

2. Understand the different terminology used to describe Professional Liability policies.

3. Gain new knowledge on 2019 case law and how the Ontario and Supreme Court of Canada have been treating Professional Liability claims.

4. Take away a preliminary claim check list for handling Professional Liability claims.



It can be a hard sell to include an E&O policy on top of a CGL policy. This seminar will give you some basic principles of Professional Liability to help you and your clients understand when and why this coverage is needed.


The exposures related to Professional Liability are different from a General Liability risk assessment. Gain some insight into what happens on the claims side of a Professional Liability policy to help in your future risk assessments.
