Most of our work involves handling negligence claims and potential claims against lawyers under Part A of the policy. Our Claims Counsel investigate and manage the claims, and sometimes act as defence counsel, in relation to the 1,000 or so reports that we receive each year. A key component of the program’s success is the high level of repairs – we successfully repair almost 20% of all errors reported to us.

LIF also manages the mandatory coverage for theft by lawyers. This remains a small but important part of our work. Coverage for dishonest appropriation is provided under Part B of the policy and we handle these claims and potential claims as well.  You will find more information on claims for theft on the Compensation for Lawyer Theft page.
