As in-house counsel for cost-conscious companies perform legal services traditionally delegated to outside law firms, these
corporate attorneys assume additional liability exposures, especially to non-client third parties.
The Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002 (Sarbanes-Oxley Act) and the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall
Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act serve to heighten the legal community's awareness of liability issues. Chubb understands
the unique malpractice risks faced by in-house attorneys, and we developed Employed Lawyers Professional Liability by ChubbSM to provide broad, responsive coverage for in-house counsel in this evolving environment.
