The Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) has added legal firm Carpenters Group as a new supplier member.
The partnership will allow MGAA members to access Carpenters’ outsourced claims services, which include FNOL claims handling, TPA services, and even comprehensive defendant litigation capability to trial.
In a statement, the MGAA explained that MGAs are still trying to come to grips with the Civil Liability Act and what it requires of them. Thus, it has become more important than ever to have the right team and expertise to provide MGAs with guidance and support, hence Carpenters Group’s addition to the MGAA, the association said. Carpenters Group not only offers fully outsourced claims services, but its defendant legal teams can help support MGAs when they are contesting claims involving their policyholders.
“The MGA market is becoming increasingly important to the industry, and we see this only growing further. We already provide our fully outsourced claims services to a number of MGAs and we’re excited to be working with the MGAA to share our expertise in this space,” said Carpenters Group head of defendant insurance services Faye Fishlock.
“I’m delighted to welcome Carpenters Group to the MGAA. Their expertise and insight will be extremely valuable to our growing MGA membership, and we look forward to working with them,” commented MGAA CEO Mike Keating.
