Architects & engineers US claims
We have the resources and expertise to help you succeed.
Let's face it - you can get an insurance policy from any number of places. However, few carriers can match our risk mitigation and claims solutions. As a matter of fact, 80% of design firm clients who responded to our claims survey said their experience with Beazley made them more inclined to recommend our service. Below is unsolicited feedback from one of our insureds:
I am writing to thank you for assigning this claim to one of your specialized A&E attorneys. When the situation began, I needed guidance in properly negotiating termination of my contract, and expected that a lawsuit might occur. However, through the excellent guidance and diligent efforts of the defense counsel recommended by Beazley, the situation has apparently been resolved with an excellent outcome. You chose wisely in assigning them to my case.
I would be remiss if I also didn't thank James DeDonato (claims manager) of Beazley for your assistance in this matter in a way you probably don't know occurred. I attended the webinar "Tug of War: Who owns your work product and who's allowed to use it?" on September 9, 2011, which clarified some issues for me which were applicable to this circumstance.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Gary J, Bruno, Architect, P.C.
