Our history

In the 1980s, many commercial insurance companies either stopped offering lawyers malpractice insurance policies or imposed dramatic and prohibitive premium increases. The Illinois State Bar Association, concerned with these circumstances, believed it was in the public interest for Illinois lawyers to have access to malpractice insurance. To that end, the leadership of the Illinois State Bar Association created ISBA Mutual Insurance Company in 1988. The result: stable premiums, better coverage, and a more responsive marketplace.

ISBA Mutual is a financially strong mutual insurance company with a stable, long-term outlook. You don’t have to take our word for it. A.M. Best, an independent financial rating service, rated ISBA Mutual as A (Excellent).
