E&O Procedure Reviews

E&O: Prevention really is the best medicine.


E&O loss exposure is a major concern for most agencies, and rightfully so. Many steps can be taken to greatly reduce an agency's risk of an E&O suit.

As an approved E&O auditor for Westport and Utica, Chris Burand conducts a comprehensive review of an agency's procedures from an E&O perspective and provides recommendations for minimizing E&O exposures while better serving the needs of the agency's customers.

A few of the areas covered in the review include:

  • Overall Procedures

  • Account Review Procedures

  • Renewal Procedures

  • Cancellation Procedures

  • Use and management of E&S Markets

  • Agency Infrastructure

Non E&O Exposures are also covered, though not comprehensively. These areas include:

  • Fraud

  • Record Retention

  • Privacy

While no recommendation, procedure, or process can totally eliminate the possibility of an E&O claim, agencies can take steps to minimize their exposure to E&O incidents.

A Burand & Associates' E&O Procedures Review provides the framework every agency needs to start taking preventative measures to minimize their E&O exposures!

NOTE: The E&O Procedures Review contains a framework and recommendations which should allow your firm to minimize its exposure to E&O claims and incidences. No recommendation, procedure or process can totally eliminate the possibility of an E&O claim or incident. Therefore, Chris Burand and Burand & Associates, LLC neither guarantee nor suggest that the recommendations in an E&O Procedures Review will eliminate the possibility of an E&O claim or incident and should not be relied upon as such.
