CNA is committed to providing companies with innovative ways to manage the growing liability risks they face. Our insurance products and programs are designed to minimize potential risks by closely matching coverages to the specific needs of the insured.

CNA has half a century of experience in underwriting Management & Professional Liability coverages. We offer a broad array of industry leading products, as well as experienced and talented underwriters whose goal is to meet client expectations. Our aim is to help clients better recognize their specific needs and then craft solutions that combine quality protection with competitive pricing.

In this increasingly litigious society, businesses face risks that were unheard of just a few short years ago. Often, general liability policies do not cover specific exposures that could lead to devastating judgments and even financial ruin.  We are committed to delivering quality products at competitive prices through prudent underwriting, superior servicing, expert claims handling and innovative solutions.  In addition to products which are listed below, we offer the following packages:

  • NEW: Kidnap, Ransom and Extortion insurance covers a wide range of threats beyond traditional kidnap for ransom situations both at home and overseas. This product is available to both public and private companies as well as not-for-profit organizations.

We offer the following products:

  • Employment Practices Liability (EPL) protects companies and individuals against loss (damages and defense costs) arising out of employment practice disputes. Common claims allege discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and wrongful discipline.
  • Directors and Officers Liability (D&O) protects directors and officers of public, private, and not-for-profit corporations against loss (damages and defense costs) arising out of their status or conduct as directors or officers. Common claims allege breach of duty, security law violations, and unfair competition. 
  • Fiduciary Liability protects fiduciaries (as defined by ERISA) against loss (damages and defense costs) arising from the administration and management of employee benefit and pension plans. Common claims allege ERISA violations, negligent advice, careless plan management, and errors and omissions.
  • Professional Liability/Errors & Omissions (E&O) protects companies and individuals against loss (damages and defense costs) resulting from acts, errors or omissions in their performance of professional duties.
