Our specialists can help you find the best solutions for your real estate risks with coordinated placement and service throughout multiple coverage lines.

We have a dedicated team of more than 20 professionals with extensive knowledge of real estate and construction risk. Each real estate venture has its own unique set of risks, and General Liability policies do not fully protect from all possible exposures. Coverage gaps can lead to significant financial loss. Ensuring your client has the correct coverage can be complicated and requires specific expertise. We can help you navigate these hurdles and secure the right coverages for your client.

Is Your Client Properly Covered

The following considerations can often be overlooked but can greatly impact whether your insured receives proper coverage.

  • Does your client have an “off the shelf generic product” or a finely-tuned manuscript policy to meet their specific exposures?
  • Does the policy adequately address any actual or alleged regulatory actions?
  • Does your client understand M&A allegations and products that can insure these exposures such as Representation & Warranty Insurance and Tax Liability Insurance?
  • What are the appropriate limits for the risk?
  • What is the best way to handle the claims process and claims management?
