AP Specialty: Providing Professional Liability Insurance Solutions for Consultants


No one profession is immune to the possibility of a lawsuit claiming damage or harm because of a negligent act, error or omission arising from the performance of an individual or firm’s professional work. This includes all types of consultants who fall under the auspices of “professional consultation”. When something goes wrong, Errors & Omissions (E&O) claims are what comprise most of the suits brought against a consultant or consultancy firm.

AP Specialty Professional Liability Wholesale Facility provides the Professional Liability insurance products you need to protect your clients’ financial security and prevent a financial setback in the event of an E&O claim. What’s more, we can tailor coverage to the risks of each consultancy field to ensure the policy responds to the firm’s needs.

Insuring a Consultant’s E&O Exposures

Our markets, both in the admitted and non-admitted markets, offer broad coverage for consultants that provide protection against claims alleging:

  • Improper documentation
  • Improper fact verification
  • Missed deadlines
  • Misrepresentation of facts
  • Breach of nondisclosure
  • Loss of data, improper procedures or negligent handling of data
  • Failure to prevent electronic theft of records and confidential information
  • Employee theft and sale of client’s trade secrets
  • Deliberate dissemination of false information
  • Violations of state and federal law, such as violation of right to privacy

In addition, we can provide enhanced, must-needed coverages such as Cyber Liability or Data Breach coverage, which protects an organization from the inadvertent disclosure and theft of confidential client.
