State Bar Endorses ALPS


The State Bar of Nevada is pleased to announce its exclusive endorsement of lawyers' professional liability insurance carrier ALPS. The bar's decision to endorse ALPS is based on the company's proven track record of providing stable, responsibly priced malpractice insurance to its policyholders nationwide.


"As a direct writer, our members are able to access ALPS staff easily. This includes their knowledgeable claims attorneys and risk management team," said State Bar of Nevada Executive Director Kimberly Farmer.


Founded in 1988, ALPS is now endorsed by, or affiliated with, more state bar associations than any other carrier. Long a supporter of the organized bar, ALPS has demonstrated itself as a trusted resource to the legal community. ALPS was founded by lawyers 25 years ago, and is still broadly staffed by lawyers.  


"There is an inherent understanding of the profession that other malpractice insurers just can't provide," said Farmer. For more on ALPS, visit the organization's website.
