Executive Liability Capabilities
Our National Executive Liability Team has the ability to model the impact a potential business decision can have on your future risk profile. Armed with insight, you can identify the required steps to mitigate the severity and frequency of future litigation.
In our practice, what we believe to be the most important first step is pre-underwriting the company to determine what the initial perception of the underwriters will be. This allows us to be well prepared and equipped to present your risk profile to the marketplace. Our underwriting analysis takes into consideration numerous factors such as current market trends, the size of the company, strength of the balance sheet, merger/acquisition history, litigation history, experience and composition of the Board, and regulatory landscape to name a few.

Private Equity/Mergers & Acquisitions Capabilities
Our National Private Equity/Mergers & Acquisitions Practice specializes in pre-closing insurance and employee benefits solutions, aggregated insurance platforms and transactional risk solutions to large and middle market private equity firms, infrastructure funds, alternative asset managers and corporate clients. Averaging more than 13 years of experience, we have collectively worked on more than 5,000 transactions.

Through a myriad of approaches from fully integrated and shared programs to partially shared or standalone programs, post-close placement results in enhanced term and conditions while maximizing cost savings for the Portfolio Company and Private Equity sponsor.
