During their conversation, Mary or Vicki mentioned:

  • ALTA offers educational resources regarding E&O Insurance.
  • Vicki explained a bit about claims-made policies.
  • She also briefly mentions D&O liability. Here's more on that.

  • Have you ever visited the website for Lloyds of London?

  • Here's a sample of a warranty statement.
  • Vicki walked Mary through the difference between Asset Purchase vs Stock Purchase of a business. Here's a bit more on that.
  • I think it would be great to show a sample certificate of insurance but when I googled there were HUNDREDS and…uhmm… I do not feeI qualified to know what's right. Do you, Mary? Or, do you think Vicki might have something? Or, is this a bad call altogether? #liabilities
  • Did you know about Eroding Limits of Liability?
  • Mary asked about Cyber Liability with regards to E&O Insurance. Check out what B. F. Saul Insurance, Inc. offers on the topic.
