What We Do

The Professional Liability Agents Network (PLAN) is a select group of insurance agencies specializing in risk management and loss prevention programs for architects, engineers and environmental consultants. 

Working with a PLAN agent to secure your professional liability insurance gives you direct access to a world of benefits. You will see the differences right from the start.

Working to help you get the best value

Professional liability insurance applications are interpretive. As specialists, we understand the questions and what they are designed to discover. We’ll walk you through the process and make sure your firm is presented to the insurance marketplace in the best possible light. 

Because we concentrate on your profession, we know exactly what you should expect and receive from the insurance marketplace. We negotiate aggressively on your behalf to secure broad coverage terms and competitive premiums. 

Service that makes a difference

After the policy is in place, we’re right there with you to help improve your firm’s loss prevention practices and reduce the cost of your professional liability insurance.

PLAN was formed in 1984 when it was determined that the creation of a national network of insurance brokers, specializing in Professional Liability Insurance and Loss Prevention services for Design Professionals, would enable individual members to enhance their sales and service abilities and, collectively, to render services throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. 

Currently 56 brokers with offices throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada provide insurance for more than 17,000 firms.

PLAN is a not-for-profit organization that operates through a Board of Directors. It holds one or more education sessions a year; publishes its own client deliverables and also produces loss prevention newsletters for Architects and Engineers entitled A/E Risk Review and for Environmental Consultants entitled E/C Risk Review.

Trade Association Sponsorships

PLAN members collectively contribute over $200,000 to associations.

We understand your business and keep ourselves current through active involvement in your professional societies and associations, reading the publications by and about your industry, and sharing information and expertise within the PLAN network. We also support you at the legislative level by pursuing positive changes in the laws that impact your profession.
