Why Choose Griffiths & Armour?
A unique approach
We pride ourselves on adopting a unique approach to serving our clients’ interests and our clients seem to value that too. The knowledge gained from looking after 3,000+ consultancy firms allows us to design reliable cover that meets our clients’ evolving needs. A number of our PI insurance facilities have achieved global recognition and we invest considerable time working with individual firms on risk awareness – continually looking at new and innovative ways of communicating our messages on risk management.
We are committed to continually reviewing and enhancing our proposition, ensuring that it continues to provide a world class solution to our clients’ insurance and risk management needs.
Advocating on your behalf
Our involvement at all levels of insurance and construction not only allows us to provide informed, technical support to our clients but enables us to become real advocates for change; supporting initiatives to improve the risk profile of construction professionals and the legal landscape within which you are operating.
We care about the issues that affect our clients and invest considerable time and resource to engaging with Government, major procurement bodies and regulators such as the Architect’s Registration Board (ARB). These engagements are further evidence of how our work at all levels is helping to support the interests of our individual clients.
Our people are highly skilled, motivated and dedicated to always putting your interests first.
Brokers are encouraged and expected to build lasting relationships with their clients. They can expect their broker to handle the Professional Indemnity renewal process from the initial information gathering exercise, to securing terms from the insurance market, to presentation of terms and post-renewal support.
That process is characterised by continuous engagement throughout the ‘insurance year’. Whether we are providing contract review advice, offering claims management services, discussing our latest risk management material or providing general day-to-day insurance advice; our experienced team, which includes brokers, risk managers and in-house claims specialists, is fully accessible to support and respond to our clients on whatever insurance or risk management questions or concerns they might have.
Unlike most insurance brokers, we have a specialist in house claims team who support our clients from initial notification, to post-settlement ‘lessons to be learned’. Our clients have access to the very best legal and technical advice through our long-standing relationship with a panel of solicitors and experts, each of whom have signed up to our unique claims handling protocols.
Our insurance market profile
Over many years, we have developed excellent relationships with most insurers underwriting Professional Indemnity insurance. Given the ‘long-tail’ associated with this class of insurance and the notoriously volatile nature of claims, we foster those relationships mindful that their continuity and sustainability are vitally important,
Our standing with insurers also enables us to establish facilities that are unique to Griffiths & Armour.
