Beazley is a leading insurer of traditional professions, such as lawyers and architects and engineers, as well as other businesses that face growing professional liability exposures, such as software companies, consultants, media companies, and retailers. We provide our services principally through four integrated teams of underwriters and claims experts. In addition, we use our experience and expertise in these classes to reinsure other companies that focus on professional liability insurance.
Professional liability is a broadening class of insurance. Companies that have not historically been classed as professions now run growing professional liability risks. Our US clients are served by both our Lloyd's and US-based underwriters, including our private enterprise team that focuses on the insurance needs of smaller scale clients.
Architects, engineers and contractors
Beazley has been a key market for architects and engineers professional liability for almost 30 years. We insure firms of all sizes, from sole proprietors to global firms including more than half of the top 50 US design firms (and eight of the top 10 firms) as ranked by Engineering News-Record.
Many insurers profess to see their clients as unique. Few really do. At Beazley, we have been underwriting professional liability insurance for law firms for 25 years. We understand the interplay of internal and environmental factors that determines each client's risk profile, enabling us to offer differentiated coverage and pricing.
Beazley insures many large and prestigious hospitals, as well as a wide range of miscellaneous medical service providers such as blood and tissue banks and clinical research organizations.
