Marsh Broker Scott Broome Recognized as a 2021 Specialty Power Broker
Scott Broome, Senior Vice President, Marsh
Scott Broome, senior vice president at Marsh, specializes in law firms and the wide range of specialty insurance coverage challenges they face. So he knows that 2020 brought on some of the most dramatic changes to market conditions in years.
The puzzle pieces became even more intricate in challenging renewals over Zoom meetings with underwriters, but he was still able to devise creative risk solutions with numerous clients.
Hope Comisky, partner, general counsel emeritus, and chair of the Professional Responsibility Committee at Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders LLP knows his skill firsthand.
“We merged with another firm and Marsh was the broker for my previous firm,” Comisky explained. “We had to secure cyber insurance in a very short period of time, and he was able to place it. He did an excellent job with it in that very short timeframe.”
Broome was further able to assist Comisky’s firm with excess professional liability insurance, which was new to part of the team. “[We were] about to place the excess insurance, and he did an excellent job to place that for January 1,” she said.
“He’s also been extremely responsive, and since the firm we merged with did not have experience with excess insurance, not only did he have to place the insurance, he had to provide expertise about its importance and the market. What stood out wasn’t just the ability to secure the insurance, it was the education and getting everyone comfortable that quickly.”
