Expertise. Creativity. Stability.
Business evolves. Needs change. As does your exposure to risk. These fluctuations necessitate continual management, to ensure you adequately protect your firm and its assets. This is where we come in. We are the resource to facilitate your risk management initiatives. We guide you through the process, on an ongoing basis, bridging the gap between your current insurance program and your risk management needs.
Established in 1947, Lamb, Little & Co. enjoys a unique position in the Chicago insurance market. We evolved with our client base, developing from a local agency to a regional concern with a national client base. Our growth over time allows for a broad range of expertise in varied industries: information technology, manufacturing, construction and professional services, to name a few. Representing the broadest mix of national and regional carriers, along with our various consulting services, enables us to custom-build a program to suit your company’s specific needs.
Lamb, Little & Co. operates with dedicated teams from sales, account management, claims and risk control services. Market depth and long-term carrier relationships enhance these offerings, affording you world-class service. We are privately held and producer owned/operated. We are not beholden to a corporate hierarchy or public shareholders. Which means that all of the strategic decisions we make, are done to better serve our clients.
Your individual needs drive our market selection and partner service recommendations; we develop and implement a program addressing your particular exposures to risk. We represent over 30 A-rated insurance carriers – regional, national and international. Our expertise, judgment, services and relationships provide you with the direction needed to manage your exposure to risk. Insurance is but part of the process.
Risk management concepts are bandied about by agents – but risk management differs for you, and for the company next door. We translate these concepts into tangible programs that you implement, and together we work with you to minimize your exposures, and maximize the benefits of your program.
Training. Experience. Concern.
Stability and longevity in staffing are essential elements to establishing a long-term risk management program for you. This allows us to guide you through the risk management process.
We begin with a coverage audit of your current program, to pinpoint your distinct needs. Coverage deficiencies are addressed; enhancements recommended. Then the strength of our market relationships comes into play. We have represented many of our carriers for decades, and have an established track record of placing quality risks with them. Industry expertise and credentialed professionals mean our dealings with insurance carriers are productive. Our knowledge of your firm effectively allows us to tell your story to the insurance carriers, and our market depth allows us to select companies based upon your particular needs, not theirs. This affords you choices in the insurance marketplace when you most need it.
Education, structure and technology enhance this process. A majority of our producers have insurance designations, to keep us and you abreast of changes in the industry. Our structure promotes stability, and producer involvement in this process is essential. Your sales professional remains your key contact throughout. Your team of professionals is dedicated; you will not be passed along to another servicing group in a year or two. And technology is one of our greatest strengths. We have numerous tools to ensure smooth and efficient servicing of all of your insurance needs, including an interactive website. We invest in technology continuously to bring greater ease of doing business to you.
We then tap into the strength of our partner services – from Loss Control and Claims Management to Human Resource Services and Employee Benefits.
Bringing in the experts your firm needs allows us to use the appropriate resources for your business. We combine all of this into a unique approach to assess, develop and implement your action plan for services and resources.
