mergers & acquisitions
Changes in business ownership present unique challenges for the client, the broker and insurance carriers. These deals require sophisticated underwriting while also demanding total confidentiality and discretion. Time frames for finalizing the deal can be very short, close dates can be delayed for months, and the underwriter must have the authority to make decisions quickly in an extremely dynamic environment. After the deal closes, the broker and underwriter must coordinate seamless, world class claims and risk engineering service to build a long term relationship with the client.
McKee Risk Management underwriters have been writing the Property and Casualty insurance on middle market M&A deals for over
15 years. We have learned that to continue to earn our producer’s business, we must be exceptionally responsive. Our services include establishing a pre-bid insurance budget and assisting our producers with their due diligence process.
