Boston Bar Association Announces New Sponsoring Organization

The Boston Bar Association announced today that the in-house legal department at Coverys, a leading medical professional liability insurance provider, is now a sponsor, supporting the BBA's mission to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large, and promote diversity and inclusion.

Coverys is dedicated to helping its policyholders and clients anticipate, identify and manage risk to reduce errors, eliminate inefficiency and improve outcomes. As one of the largest medical professional liability insurance providers in the country, Coverys is responsible for insuring over 32,000 physicians, dentists, and allied healthcare providers, as well as more than 500 hospitals, health centers and clinics from coast to coast.

In addition to its insurance products and service delivery to the healthcare industry, it also has established the Coverys Community Healthcare Foundation to support charitable organizations and endeavors that improve patient safety and care, promote healthy lifestyles, address obesity, and support individuals and organizations that provide healthcare.

"Coverys supports organizations that provide services to the community, including the Boston Bar Association," said Erin Brennan Bagley, vice president and general counsel for Coverys. "BBA's commitment to diversity and inclusion, educational programs, and community involvement are values that Coverys shares and we are pleased to be included in the list of distinguished sponsors of the association."

The Boston Bar Association traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the nation’s second president. Its mission is to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large and promote diversity and inclusion.
