Leadway Assurance has assured of its commitment to provide insurance protection to practicing lawyers, who are members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).
The provision of insurance cover, Leadway said, was based on its partnership with the NBA for the week long 2017 NBA General Conference, which held in Lagos.
Speaking on the partnership, Executive Director, Leadway Assurance, Ms. Adetola Adegbayi, said the company deployed its state-of-the-art, first-of-its-kind Insurance mobile office to engage the thousands of lawyers, who attended the conference, on its tailored-for-lawyers insurance plan.
She said: “We believe that by providing insurance to the members of the Nigerian Bar Association, we are intrinsically providing the biggest support to the economy, governance and government of the country. Insurance helps safeguard the profession and the professionals alike.
“It would be recalled that the NBA, the largest body of lawyers in Africa with over 100,000 registered members, entered into a strategic partnership with Leadway Assurance Limited in 2014 to provide a feasible group life insurance policy for all lawyers, who pay their Annual Bar Practice Fees when due. The insurance policy is designed to cover all the lawyers in the following areas: Death or permanent total accidental disability; accidental death; critical illness and accidental medical expenses.”
