Legal Advocacy


IIABAZ Members may access a library of Agency-Company Contracts reviewed by IIABA's Legal Department or have their current contract reviewed. 
The Big I Office of General Counsel reviews agency-company contracts to ensure that they are fair and equitable to both parties. They also make recommendations for improvements to the contract language. IIABAZ Member Agents can use these reviews when negotiating a company contract. 

Note: You will need to log into the website as a Member to be able to view these reviews.

If the company contract you need reviewed is not listed, please forward the contract to info@iiabaz.comIt will then be submitted to the Big I's Legal Department for review. Please note that this process may take a couple of weeks for the legal review.
