Bad things can happen to a law firm that are not malpractice. If not addressed promptly could possibly end or damage the reputation of a firm or one of its attorneys. NFLI Crisis Event Coverage may help to address these issues. The actual coverage provided is in the Supplementary Payments policy section. Notice of a Crisis Event shall be deemed a Notice of Potential Claim. Not all insurers provide a similar coverage.
