Purchasing Group Users' Handbook

Purchasing Group Users' Handbook

The Purchasing Group Users' Handbook is the complete manual for registration of purchasing groups in compliance with the Liability Risk Retention Act.

Here's what our customers have to say:

I regard the Handbook as the most essential tool for my practice. It is my main reference library. Every time that I file applications to register a new PG, I go through each state's checklist to make certain that I have not overlooked any item. I really could not conduct my practice without the Handbook.

Daniel V. O'Leary, Jr., Of Counsel, Mandell Menkes LLC

The PGUH is very informative and a constant source of information for me and our company. When our company first decided to register purchasing groups, this Handbook was the starting point that gave pretty much all the information we needed, from the state requirements, to what forms to use and even referenced the specific risk retention and purchasing group insurance laws for each state for me to look up.
