April 24, 2017

Joe Kingma moderated “The State of the Insurance Market” a panel presentation at the ABA National Legal Malpractice Conference in Boston on April 20.

Panelists discussed what the future holds for the LPL market in the face of big changes in the federal government, Brexit, volatile stock and bond markets, aging lawyers and law firms, and new forms of practice.

Panel Members represented various perspectives including NABRICO, Small to Big Law, and Reinsurance.

No one saw any signs of a hard market looming on the horizon, but premium increases for law firms in 2017 were noted to average in the 2-4% range.
