Law Firms & Legal Services

The role of the legal professional in Canada continues to expand and we are here to meet those demands by providing solutions for the potential liabilities they face. Some of the solutions we provide are as follows:

Lawyer's Excess Professional Liability is to specifically to meet the professional liability (errors and omissions) needs of law firms across Canada that require coverage in excess of the Provincial Law Society Group programs and allows for significantly higher limits of coverage.

The Federation of Law Societies of Canada requires "Every lawyer in Canada who provides legal services to the public is required to be insured against professional negligence. In each province and territory, the governing body administers a group liability insurance program. All compulsory programs provide at least $1,000,000 coverage for each claim. Lawyers and law firms often purchase excess insurance coverage for extra protection."

Holman Insurance Brokers Ltd. arranges coverage specifically designed to provide excess coverage for the underlying insurance group program. We are able to offer significantly higher limits above the mandatory coverage - up to $100 million or more is available. This ensures that your firm can structure an insurance package that suits your specific requirements.

Ther principals of our company have experience in the providing lawyers excess for over 40 years. In fact, Frank Holman was instrumental in setting up coverage for many of the provincial law societies across Canada. Many of these law firms are still clients today.


Certain types of law practice fall outside of the Provincial Law Society Group programs. We have solutions for Members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association - AILA Canada who are able to buy primary insurance company through an exclusive program and even solutions for Foreign Legal Consultants from many different countries operating in Canada. This coverage meets all requirements of the LSUC and other Provincial Law Societies.
