An important ancillary coverage in the Aspen American form is the Subpoena Expenses supplementary payment. Aspen will pay, up to $25,000 per policy period, for qualifying legal defense fees and expenses incurred in responding to a subpoena for documents or testimony. The LPP Claims Department may retain an attorney to provide advice regarding the production of documents, to prepare the Insured for sworn testimony, and represent the Insured at their deposition.
The Lawyers Protector Plan has partnered with Aspen American Insurance Company since 2013 and offers comprehensive professional liability coverage to attorneys and law firms across the country. While many professional liability coverage forms have similar general coverages, exclusions, and conditions, it is important to dive deeper into a policy to understand the complete package of ancillary or supplementary coverages available.
