Professional servicesYou’ve worked hard to attain the professional designations that draw clients to your office: years of education and training and building a client base took place long before you hung out that sign with your name on it.
Most professional services businesses depend on a few dedicated partners to keep them running; if you’re one of them, you can’t afford to be diverted from the task of running your business by risks that can often be averted, such as simply preventing employee injuries or preparing for natural disasters that can halt business.
The risks in the technology industry are as varied as the businesses themselves. Hanover Risk Solutions has considered a wide variety of the risks your business faces.
