Lilian Morvay is an affiliate expert for Bates Group and has over 25 years of legal, insurance and risk management experience in the professional liability arena, with a specific focus on Independent Broker Dealer and Investment Advisor Errors & Omissions. Lilian began her legal career litigating insurance coverage matters for both domestic and international insurance carriers.  Her professional experience also includes supervising a team of attorneys and managing the broker dealer and investment advisor claims department for a domestic insurance carrier.  Lilian expanded her insurance experience by underwriting professional liability insurance policies for broker dealers and investment advisors.  While an underwriter, Lilian created a risk management program for the independent broker dealers and RIAs, which has been in existence for 8 years.

As an attorney with extensive experience as a litigator, claims director and underwriter, Lilian has developed a deep understanding of both the insurance and the investment industries, which she has parlayed into the creation of the Independent Broker Dealer Consortium (IBDC), 8 years ago. IBDC offers risk management support for the broker dealer and investment advisor communities with an annual conference, monthly webinars and legal hotline services.
