Consider 3 key criteria most accounting firms (CPA) should consider when choosing a professional liability insurance provider.

  1. INSURER ACCESSIBILITY & EXPERTISE:
    • a. Make sure your CPA insurance program provides accessible expertise such as in-house specialists who help you prevent and minimize risks and losses, controlling your premiums for years to come.
  2. PRODUCT SPECIFIC TO YOUR FIRM
    • Excessively high or low policy limits are red flags and can put you at risk for prolonged claims or larger losses. Each accounting practice is unique—tax specialists have exposures that are different from those of auditors. A good insurer or broker will help you find the limits and coverage appropriate for your needs.
  3. RESPONSIVE EXPERT CLAIMS HANDLING
    • Choose a CPA insurer with many years of experience in all types of CPA liability claims. Find out whether an in-house professional will personally handle your situation and guide you through the process.
    • Be sure to check if the Claims department provides a proactive defense to claims – not passive and reactionary. Upfront analysis enables the development and implementation of a strategy to resolve the matter in a focused manner.
