“We are pleased to expand our long-term relationship with PartnerOne Environmental through this new product,” said Chris DeLauder, Senior Vice President of Berkley Specialty Underwriting Managers’ Environmental Division. “Contractors Pollution and Professional liability has grown out of the well-established pollution liability market and helps protect against environmental liabilities associated with contracting operations, or the liability from a negligent act, error or omission in the performance of professional services.
