Risk Management Consulting

Claim Repair Hotline

The Alta Pro Lawyers Program writes firms from sole practitioners to firms with up to 100 lawyers. Firms that practice predominantly in admiralty, patent or securities law are not eligible for either our standard or non-standard programs. We carefully evaluate firms that regularly engage in large exposure matters involving complex business transactions, personal injury and class action litigation, and high exposure divorce and estate planning and resolution. For those firms that do not fit within our standard program guidelines, Alta Pro offers a non-standard program alternative. For firms that do not fit either of our programs, Alta Pro Plus can provide solutions.
