Some History

ISBA Mutual Insurance Company was founded in 1988 by the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) to offer Illinois lawyers access to professional liability insurance with fair and stable premiums and solid coverage. Prior to that, commercial insurance companies offered legal malpractice insurance policies, but they came with costly and prohibitive premium increases.
