Lawyers Helping to Protect Business Interests

Many business law issues can arise that can impact a company financially. Whether due to employee misconduct, theft, or failure on the part of another entity to complete a job, you may find your business in a difficult position financially. Two kinds of insurance bonds can be used to protect your company and yourself from significant losses in these kinds of situations.

The firm can assist you with the following types of insurance bonds:

  • Fidelity bond - This insurance bond is designed to protect a company from the misconduct of an employee. For example, if your employee steals from you, your company's insurance may not cover the loss, however a fidelity bond can ensure that your losses are recovered. These bonds can be created as a general umbrella for all employees or for a specific individual employee.
  • Surety bond - This type of bond protects a company from losses suffered due to the incompletion of a job. For example, if you (the obligee) hire a construction company (the principal) to complete a project on a building, and the principal does not follow through, then the surety bond will require a third party (the surety) to pay the difference so that the project may be completed by another company.

The continued operation of your business is of the utmost importance, and you need to be sure that you can protect your company from suffering severe losses in circumstances involving third parties, contractors, and employees. You may greatly benefit from obtaining either of these bonds depending on your situation, type of business, and industry.
