The Professional Services practice is unique within the insurance brokerage industry in that we are a discrete service unit, providing our clients with virtually all the services they may require regardless of their location. Unlike most brokers, one team provides:
In the insurance transaction, Professional Services is a client advocate rather than an agent of insurers. Our philosophy is "clients first", and we use our expertise and leverage to obtain the broadest coverage with quality insurers at competitive pricing. To help our client manage its risk, we will provide multiple alternatives for coverage rather than a single renewal option.
As a discrete specialty practice, our professionals work exclusively with law firms. This has created an institutional knowledge base that cannot be replicated by other brokers. Many of our team members have spent the vast majority of their careers at Aon or its predecessor, Minet.
Professional Services is a collaborative practice of professional brokers who consult with one another and pool their considerable experience and expertise in placing the most difficult and demanding risks. We negotiate directly with the most senior underwriters of each insurance carrier with which we deal. We negotiate with a multitude of global insurance companies that we consider to be the most committed, financially stable, aggressive and appropriate for the client. Market intelligence, experience, and best practices are shared regularly. Each broker is recognized in our industry as a true "specialist" in law firm brokering.
Unlike other brokers, there is no "handoff" of services within Aon. Our team retains all responsibility and control for the placement of coverage. Components of the process include:
As the largest broker to professional service firms, our market knowledge and relationships are unparalleled. We are often the industry catalyst for policy language enhancements. We are in the market every day.
There are some advantages granted to clients of our group that are typically not available to clients of other brokers. This is based not only on the volume of premium we bring to the markets, but also on the markets' perception of our integrity, professionalism, and segment knowledge.
