ASSE Commercial General Liability Insurance
(Application follows)

The coverage for which you are applying is an Annual policy. It is written on a "Per Occurrence" basis - i.e., it responds to claims arising from occurrences which take place during the policy period - regardless of when the claim is made.
 
If you wish to bind this coverage and your expiring General Liability policy was written on a "Claims Made" basis, you will need to contact that broker to find out what your options may be with regard to "tail" coverage for that policy. (Please note there is usually only a short time frame during which this "tail" coverage is available for purchase when the policy is expiring.)
 
The application attached becomes a part of your ASSE General Liability policy. Unless otherwise noted or advised, coverage under the policy extends only to the activities you list (unless changed by endorsement) - so it is very important you accurately and completely describe the work to be covered by this policy.
 
The ASSE General Liability policy excludes professional services – an essential part of your insurance coverage. Therefore, in order to bind any ASSE General Liability coverage, Underwriters require you also maintain the ASSE Professional Liability insurance in equal or greater limits. If you need information on the ASSE Professional Liability Insurance, please give our office a call.
 
It is preferable any subcontractors you use maintain their own professional and general liability insurance in limits at least equaling yours and name you as an additional insured under their policy. We do have an Additional Insured Form available which may be used to request additional insured status for your clients or subcontractors. That coverage is provided only to the extent that liability arises out of your conduct as the Named Insured.
 
Watch the wording of your client's contracts! The ASSE General Liability policy provides coverage only with respect to your work and to the extent the same liability would exist in the absence of a contract. It does not cover contractual indemnification requirements nor cover you for failure to maintain a client's insurance requirements. For this reason, it is especially important for you and/or your attorneys to review the contractual and indemnification section of your clients contracts to make sure you are aware of the liabilities you may be assuming and request changes as necessary.
 
This insurance policy provides only General Liability coverage. Thus for example, the General Liability policy will not provide coverage for the following:
                        
                                    *Automobile Liability (Owned, Non-owned or Hired)
                                    *Workers Compensation
                                    *Employers Liability
                                    *Stop Gap Coverage
                                    *Professional Liability
                                    *Your Personal Business Property
 
Some of these coverages may be available to us through other markets in certain states. If you are in need of them, let us know. In closing, we are looking forward to working with you. If you have any questions about the application or the coverage, please feel free to give us a call.
