New Products and Services

Old Republic Professional has teamed up with Littler Mendelson P.C., a leading national employment and labor law firm, to provide OR ProAssistsm, a new and comprehensive online suite of loss prevention tools that provides best practice guidance and counsel on employment law issues. The offering also includes a free legal hotline service where insureds can receive advice and counsel on any number of employment or labor law issues from experienced Littler attorneys.

OR ProAssistsm is available to Old Republic primary and excess employment practices liability insurance customers.

Old Republic Professional offers primary employment practices liability coverage to public and private companies as well as law firms.
