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


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 (A&E)

We insure half of the top 50 US design firms (and eight of the top 10 firms) as ranked by Engineering News-Record. Since 2005, we have also been underwriting A&E risks locally in the United States, on both an admitted and non-admitted basis, for smaller firms. In addition to broad professional indemnity coverage that includes a wide range of technology-related exposures, we provide in-depth risk management advice.


We provide professional indemnity insurance cover to a third of the Am Law 200 top US law firms and hundreds of smaller firms. We offer tailored coverage, risk management advice, and expert claims service to US law firms of all sizes and practice areas.


We are a leading insurer of US hospitals and long term care institutions, as well as providing coverage for a wide range of miscellaneous healthcare risks, such as blood and tissue banks, clinical research organizations, and nurse staffing agencies.

Technology, Media & Business Services

We insure two thirds of the top 25 global software and software services companies as ranked by Software Magazine. Our team is skilled at crafting insurance coverages that help technology, media and business services clients seize new opportunities in some of the most competitive and dynamic markets on earth.
