Lawyers’ Professional Indemnity Company (LAWPRO)


Be the first to review

LAWPRO is a leading provider of professional liability insurance for lawyers in Ontario, as well as excess insurance for law firms and title insurance across Canada. As a professional liability powerhouse, we are committed to upholding the values of professionalism, innovation, integrity, service, and leadership.

Prior to our incorporation as an independent insurance company, the fund established to pay for professional indemnity claims against Ontario lawyers was severely underfunded, with a shortfall of over $200 million dollars. This crisis led to the creation of LAWPRO, a highly specialized and efficient insurance company that operates independently from the Law Society of Ontario.

LAWPRO is guided by the principles outlined in the Task Force Report, which include the following:

  • Operating separately and independently from the Law Society, with an independent board of directors
  • Operating in a commercially reasonable manner
  • Ensuring that the cost of insurance reflects the risk of claims
  • Resolving claims fairly and expeditiously

At LAWPRO, we are committed to providing our insured lawyers with exceptional coverage and support, including access to risk management resources and legal advice. We understand the unique challenges and risks faced by lawyers in their daily practice, and we are dedicated to helping them manage those risks and protect their businesses.
