Combined with our sister company, MMIC, we sit just shy of 175 employees. We’re still small enough to be a close-knit group. That means that collaboration is key, and we find equal enjoyment in achieving a personal career best and working behind the scenes to help a colleague shine.
Our highly trained claim team includes attorneys, nurses, physicians, litigation support and media crisis professionals who work together to vigorously protect the interests of our policyholders. They promptly and thoroughly investigate, evaluate and dispose of a wide variety of general liability and medical professional liability claims.
