Insurance Broker Support and Training

SDV's insurance broker support and training services are a novel approach to working with our broker partners.  Our attorneys are thoroughly on top of the latest developments in insurance law and are ready to respond to challenging legal questions or present at in-house seminars on numerous topics of interest to brokers and their clients.

Our attorneys work with our broker partners in all stages of the broker-client relationship, from policy negotiation to claim resolution, sharing the lessons learned from our years of experience in insurance law.  We advise on risk transfer options and strategies for claims, review new policy forms and endorsements for potential issues, analyze insurer disclaimer and reservation of rights letters and draft responses and advise on how changes and state-to-date variations in the law impact coverage.  This valuable resource is just a phone call away, resulting in increased satisfaction to a broker's clients and reduced errors & omissions exposure.
