Our team approach adds perspective and provides increased benefits to our clients.

How We Work

How We Work

From introduction through execution, we work with your interests in mind to get exactly what you need. Our client advocacy takes many forms. For example:

  1. Finding coverage for a “gray area” insurance claim in danger of falling through the cracks or getting snagged by an exclusion.

  2. Helping a construction client’s customer get beyond the Experience Mod Rating in evaluating our client’s safety culture and safety program.

  3. Assisting our real estate developers in accurately monitoring the insurance of their tenants, subcontractors and vendors.
