Our clients range from the largest national and international firms to superior mid-size and boutique firms. We bring global resources and a uniquely Canadian approach to design solutions tailor-made for our clients.

Understanding the Canadian risk and business environment, as well as the scope and limitations of mandatory law society and other standard policies, allows us to design risk financing solutions which meet the particular risk exposures facing Canadian law firms.

National and international firms: we design insurance solutions adapted to meet the particular exposures of firms operating in multiple jurisdictions across Canada and internationally, securing broad coverage and competitive terms.

Regional firms: we provide all-in-one office packages to address premises and operations risks, as well as professional liability insurance at competitive terms (to sit in excess of mandatory law society coverage).

Law societies: we offer customized and innovative insurance (and reinsurance) programs to law societies and other insurance buying groups serving the legal community. Our capabilities include: risk and program modeling to determine most effective use of reinsurance; program design that fits with the specific buying group needs and goals; access to specialist insurance and reinsurance markets around the world; and, all aspects of insurance program administration and technical support.
