Cyber, Management & Professional Liability Community

The purpose of the Cyber, Management & Professional Liability Community (CMPL) is to assist members in obtaining a higher awareness of issues and trends in the management & professional liability insurance marketplace with an emphasis on matters related to litigation management through a collaborative effort between insurance companies and brokerages, claims organizations and service providers. To strengthen the industry resources available for management & professional liability claims and litigation professionals, CLM has transitioned executive oversight of the new CMPL Community to the CMPL Advisory Board. This board comprised of industry leaders will guide the development of extensive professional liability resources. Both Fellows and Members are eligible to join.
