The term “Professional Insurance” is more commonly referred to as Malpractice Insurance or Errors & Omissions. The need for Professional Insurance is no longer limited to Doctors, Lawyers and Insurance Agents. The Foster Sullivan Group works closely with professionals, technology companies, start-ups and design professionals to understand the type of work being performed and the advice given to clients, to assess the true nature of the Professional Liability exposure.

Not only does the Foster Sullivan Group have access to all national and global markets for the insurance part of your Professional Liability exposure, but with on-staff counsel, licensed insurance advisors, coverage and claim specialists, and designated industry account managers, we have the capabilities and expertise to give advice and counsel on your overall risk management profile: when to insure; when to retain risk (deductibles); when to invest in loss avoidance and loss mitigation.

Our expert staff will work closely with you to understand your specific challenges, develop risk control programs that have an impact, and then design a ‘narrative’ for the insurance marketplace about your exposure that will have the insurers competing for your business. We will work with you throughout the year, year over year, to review, forecast and reduce your overall cost of risk and make sure your program is affordably responding to your changing needs.

You have worked hard to develop your business and have much at stake in its success. Make sure you engage true professionals to properly protect your capital from risk. The Foster Sullivan Group – Protecting Your Business, Protecting Your Future.

    Foster Sullivan Insurance has worked with us since our founding in 1989. Over the last 25 years, WEI has grown from 2 employees to over 80. We have had many different insurance carriers over the years but always the same agent. Mike Foster and Kelly Pappas have provided a consistent competitive insurance program as our company has grown. We appreciate the fact that Foster Sullivan focuses on risk reduction strategies – not just the sale of another insurance product.

    I have been doing business with Foster Sullivan and Karen for over 5 years. She has always been extremely responsive, competitive, professional and dependable. Karen’s efforts have saved our organization thousands of dollars, while ensuring that we constantly have the right amount and type of coverage for our business.

    Airex Filter Corporation has been doing business with Mike and Foster Sullivan for more than 15 years. Mike has consistently offered competitive pricing and more importantly has been our advocate when we have had claims. Working with them makes dealing with insurance matters so much easier. With the growing concern our customers have to work with vendors that are fully insured, asking for certificates of insurance has become common place. The staff at Foster Sullivan is fantastic to work with, and the response to all matters is immediate.

  • David Howard
    Piquette & Howard Electric Service has been a client of Foster Sullivan Insurance Group for over 20 years.  Our company has grown and expanded since then and Mike Foster and Kelly Pappas have been able to keep our insurance rates competitive and our coverage appropriate during that expansion.  With her legal background, Kelly has been extremely helpful in reviewing contracts and recommending changes when needed.  For us, as a contractor, getting Certificates of Insurance turned around quickly is crucial.  Foster Sullivan will get them back to us in less than 4 hours – usually sooner.  I would highly recommend  Foster Sullivan Insurance as an Agency to anybody looking for responsiveness, professionalism and dependability.

Business Owner Concerns...

Does your Agent recognize your insurance premiums’ impact on your Profit & Loss? Read More
Are you working with an invisible agent who appears only at renewal meetings?

Foster Sullivan has a team of proactive, responsive, accessible account managers and agents who know you, your business and your industry. We couple that with a specific, continuous service program throughout the policy year.

Have you been a victim of copy-quote-pray, where an Agent trying to win your business takes all of your existing policies, replicates them and comes back with a quote, hoping to sign you on as a new customer without any discussion about coverages, limits, deductibles or other tailored solutions? Many Agents offer standard insurance products in mainstream lines, with little to no client-specific consideration for their unique needs.
To varying extents, all claims make their way into a client’s “loss history” and will impact premium and underwriting. If your Agent fails to proactively engage the carrier on claim management and resolution, including keeping you updated on the claim status, you may be a victim of sticker shock at renewal.

Foster Sullivan has deep claims and litigation expertise within the agency, allowing for significant impact on claims handling. We put that expertise to use for our clients’ benefit in an effort to favorably impact their long-term premiums.

If your Agent doesn’t understand your business, how can he/she understand the challenges you face each day in successfully operating your core business?

Foster Sullivan’s account management and account executive experts, aligned in industry-specialized teams, are actively engaged in industry forums, associations and groups, while getting to know a client’s specific business and personnel.

Is your Agent solely focused on making the next sale and hitting a target for the month or do they strive for personal growth?

Foster Sullivan employees encompass a broad and deep expertise that includes legal, insurance and business experts, all brought to bear for a comprehensive approach to managing your risk in a professional, advisory and consultative manner. Continuing education and self-improvement is a vital part of the Foster Sullivan culture.
