“Given the tremendous responsibility of design professionals requiring unique knowledge, skills, and attitudes in a continuously changing profession, we are pleased to partner with our professional liability Affinity partner, Pearl Insurance, to expand ASCE’s Professional Liability program offering to include The Hanover A&E product in addition to the current professional liability offering,” stated ASCE executive director Tom Smith.
