Don’t Get Hammered by Your Attorney Malpractice Hammer Clause
Your agent told you that you don’t want to have a clause in your policy called “The Hammer Clause.” No, it’s not a Pro-Wrestling move and no, you won’t find the term anywhere in your policy. The Hammer Clause is a term of art for forcing a settlement in the Defense, Indemnification, and Cooperation section of your policy. And you need to understand it. It could mean your career.
