I co-own a professional services business.
I am about to renew my Professional Liability Insurance policy.
The insurance company is asking for almost doubled my premiums, giving the reason that our revenue almost doubled since last year.
Is this common? or do you recommend getting a different quote?

Hello! Thank you for your question today. My goal is to provide you with the information you seek.

Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) I will provide you with honest information and not necessarily to tell you might be hoping to hear.

Unfortunately it is not uncommon for premiums to go up as your profit goes up. Typically a range in profit will increase premiums such as profit below $100,000 has X premium, profit from $100,000 -$250,000 has Y premium.

However, it never hurts to compare shop and obtain additional quotes for premiums. Make sure if a new insurance provider is chosen that your policy contains "tail" coverage to cover any claims under your prior policy.

All my best & encouragement.
