Nancy P. James Named one of “Top Ten Insurers” by Women’s Business Boston


  • Analyze and identify technical risks of loss
  • Make recommendations on risk management of exposed areas
  • Prepare submissions for insurance coverage solutions
  • Negotiate coverage rates and programs

Protect yourself from:

  • Loss or Damage to Shipments
    Do you have transit exposures? Check your common carrier limits! We examine transit exposures in our overall analysis.
  • Product Liability Suits
    We analyze and identify your products liability exposure for proper underwriting.
  • Unsatisfied Foreign Court Judgments
    If your company exports any products outside the U.S. your current insurance package probably does not cover suits first brought in foreign courts. We can provide such coverage!
  • Exposure to Design Errors or Omissions
    We know the difference between “Products” and “Design Errors & Omissions” risks.
  • QC Procedures that Differ from Property Insurance Settlement Clauses

Are you sensitive to growth problems with keeping insurance coverage values current?
We have a solution.

Examples of problems solved

  • If you are faced with the possibility of a loss to a sole supplier, we can provide coverage for that supplier, no matter where it is located.
  • Whether you ship FOB loading dock or destination, we provide transit coverage.

Even though your policy reads “worldwide” coverage,  be sure that it does not restrict coverage to suits first brought in the U.S.  Unsatisfied judgments in foreign courts will lead to severe sanctions.
