Are contract attorneys covered?
Some policies cover contract attorneys automatically, while others exclude such coverage. Still other will cover contract attorneys if informed who they are and provided with information about them. When taking on a contract attorney, some questions you should ask are: Am I covered under my policy? Do I need to report this to my broker for transmittal to the company? Does the contract attorney I am about to employ carry his own coverage? Don’t just assume that coverage is in place. It’s better to find out at the beginning of the relationship where you both stand, rather than be sorry later.
