What is Paralegal Insurance?

Professional Liability Insurance is intended to help protect paralegals because they offer professional advice and could bear the full cost of defending against a negligence claim made by a client (should they decide to file a lawsuit).

The Law Society of most Canadian provinces including Ontario, requires paralegals to have full professional liability insurance.


What does Paralegal Insurance cover?

Paralegal Insurance is designed to protect your practice against errors and omissions (actual or alleged), which occur while you provide legal advice to clients.

Most professional liability insurance policies may cover economic (financial losses) which are suffered by third-parties. Along with paralegals, professional liability insurance also applies to lawyers, accountants, brokers and financial advisors.


Who needs Paralegal Insurance?

If you or your business are providing paralegal advice (e.g. professional advice to clients ), you require Paralegal Liability Insurance (PLI) or Errors & Omissions (E&O) Insurance protection coverage. In Ontario and other Canadian provinces, Paralegals who provide legal services to the public must carry liability insurance in accordance with Law Society of Ontario Paralegal licensing requirements.

Check with your federal or provincial paralegal association for more information:


What is the cost of Paralegal Liability Insurance?

The cost of owning paralegal insurance will depend on a number of factors including your gross revenue, years of experience and financials.

The limits available for claims with your policy will depend on the insurance carrier you end up purchasing from.

Zensurance’s paralegal insurance meets the requirements of Law Society of Upper Canada and includes the required 60 days notice of cancellation to LSUC and the requirements for all other Law Societies in other provinces across Canada.
