Goldberg Segalla has established risk-management hotlines for numerous national insurance company partners. This value-added benefit provides the carriers’ professional liability policyholders with 24/7 direct access to counsel, and the opportunity to receive best-practice insights for rapidly emerging issues, unique challenges, and concerns regarding various errors and omissions situations for a wide variety of professionals, including:

  • Accountants
  • Real Estate Professionals
  • Title Insurance Agencies and Brokers
  • Staffing Agencies and Professional Employer Organizations
  • Home Inspectors
  • Franchisors and Franchisees
  • Property Managers
  • Notaries

“The firm was chosen as the sole provider of hotlines for these professional liability policyholders based on Goldberg Segalla’s expertise, geographic reach, and the depth and breadth of our experience handling such matters,” said Management and Professional Liability Co-Chair Jonathan Ziss. “That these insurers are confident they can entrust us with their clients demonstrates how the insurance industry looks to us as experts, and relies on us to provide direct service to their insureds via these hotlines.”

While no attorney-client privilege is formed in the context of a hotline call, the insights provided can help a professional gain tactical insights and strategies on how to handle a given situation to prevent damage or to keep problems from escalating. Providing policyholders a direct hotline to knowledgeable counsel provides an invaluable resource for reducing risk and exposure as a supplement to their company’s risk-control programs.
