General Information

DRI's 2021 Professional Liability Seminar takes place on Thursday, December 9 to Friday, December 10 at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York, New York.

The New Normal will never be the Old Normal. The events of 2020 and 2021 changed our world and our professions forever. Some change is good, some not, some was desperately overdue. Join us as your colleagues and industry leaders engage in thought-provoking discussions about how to best serve your clients and improve your practice in a post-pandemic world. We address everything from juries to cyber risks, to professional responsibility, to business interruption and business succession. And we have brought back our popular claims jeopardy where you get to ask claims professionals your burning questions. Use the information you learn at the seminar to improve your own practice and to improve the protection you provide to your clients. This seminar can’t be beat.
