Client Anecdote: Our client owned a start-up business in the recreation services industry. He had little knowledge of the insurance risks involved. We worked with our client to assess his insurance needs, explain exposures and coverages, discuss options, and design a plan. We introduced him to a group for others in his industry and were with him through two lawsuits. Today, we continue to enjoy a close business relationship adjusting their insurance as the business grows.
