Florida Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company is the only insurance company created by and for Florida lawyers to provide Lawyers Professional Liability (LPL) insurance to attorneys engaged in the private practice of Florida law. Our policies provide lawyers and their clients with protection for the mistakes that can happen — even to the best of us. Additionally, we provide free CLE, ongoing risk management guidance, and a robust suite of membership benefits to the lawyers we insure. Whether you have a question about your policy or need to report a claim, Florida Lawyers Mutual provide personalized and impassioned service that has become legendary among lawyers in Florida.
During the early 1980s, numerous insurance companies abandoned our state, leaving Florida lawyers without an option to protect themselves and their clients. Recognizing that this crisis exposed both lawyers and the public to high levels of risk, The Florida Bar created Florida Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company. After creating the mutual company entity, assembling a Board of Directors, and hiring a staff of professionals, The Florida Bar unconditionally divested its ownership and terminated all operational management and control of the Company going forward.
Today, Florida Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company exists as a mutual entity unto itself, owned entirely by the lawyers we insure. It is for this reason we refer to our policyholders as members. Our members participate in electing our Board of Directors and enjoy many value-added benefits of membership beyond the insurance policy itself.

Will Florida Lawyers Mutual Share My Information with The Florida Bar?
Florida Lawyers Mutual recognizes the enduring impact and legacy of the Company’s original Board of Directors and its founding members.
In 1997, the Company joined together with other Bar-related insurance companies to form Lawyers Reinsurance Company, a Vermont-based captive reinsurance company. The formation of this company is the logical extension of the vision all the nation’s Bar-related insurance companies had when they were formed, i.e., to take their future into their own hands and provide quality protection to lawyers.
Florida Lawyers Mutual is a proud member company of the National Association of Bar-Related Insurance Companies (NABRICO).
