About Berkley Design Professional

In 2013, Berkley Design Professional (Berkley DP) was created by a team of insurance professionals with a passion for the design industry and deep roots in Architects and Engineers Professional Liability underwriting, risk management and claims management.

The genesis of Berkley DP was the combination of our team’s passion for bringing fresh ideas to the products and services design professionals need together with the resources of W. R. Berkley Corporation.

Berkley DP’s motto is: Better By Design®. By this we mean that our policyholders can become better businesses by leveraging our innovative risk management solutions, fair and experienced claims services and comprehensive architects and engineers professional liability coverage.
