Don't lose your prior acts coverage!
Set your FREE E&O renewal reminder
It is extremely important that you understand the crucial need to avoid "gaps" of any kind in your E&O coverage. If you allow any gap to occur, even a gap of 1 day, between one policy's expiration and the next policy's effective date, you could lose years of prior acts protection.
