Arbitration / Mediation Program

Designed exclusively for California lawyers whose practice is 100% Arbitration/Mediation

The Arbitration/Mediation Program is an exciting new Professional Liability Insurance Program designed exclusively for California lawyers whose practice is 100% arbitration/mediation. Varying degrees of coverage are afforded through this Program for unbelievably low rates.

If your practice is less than 100% arbitration/mediation, you must apply for coverage under our Standard Program. Provided that your practice is at least 85% arbitration/mediation, you will receive the benefit of a reduced premium, subject to approval.


  • Prior Acts coverage is available for each prior consecutive year in which you were a solo practitioner** with a 100% arbitration/mediation practice. If you do not desire or qualify for Full Prior Acts coverage, premiums are even lower for no prior acts coverage or for a limited prior acts period.
  • "Claims-Free Credits" -- Earn premium credits based upon future Claims-Free years with LMIC.
  • Full LMIC member benefits during the policy period, including our FREE MCLE Program.
  • FREE Cyber Coverage in the amount of $100,000 incident/aggregate.
