Am I covered for Libel & Slander?

How does Professional Liability insurance work?

Professional Liability insurance defends you from financial and legal claims made against your business. Perhaps you fall sick and miss a contractual deadline, causing your client to delay the launch and lose money. They can sue you for compensation. Or perhaps you publish something that someone takes offense to. They may sue you for defamation.

Even if you have done nothing wrong, we bring expert liability lawyers to your side to review any allegations and defend you.

How much does writer insurance cost?

The price of Professional Liability insurance depends on what you do and where you do it. For instance, a journalist writing for an international newspaper will pay more than a lyricist in Maryland.

Our writer insurance starts at as little as $23 per month (less than one dollar a day) for $100,000 in Professional Liability coverage.
