Hall and Company is an insurance brokerage firm that specializes in the placement of professional liability insurance. We currently are the brokers for more than 3,600 clients located throughout the United States. The U.S. map pictured above illustrates the general geographic disbursement of our customers.
We are an independent brokerage firm and place insurance with a wide variety of carriers.
In addition to professional liability insurance we also provide all the property and casualty coverages that our clients need, including business package policies, general liability, property, auto, workman’s comp, and inland marine.
We are located in Poulsbo, Washington, a suburb west of Seattle located on the Kitsap Peninsula. Our office is located a 35-minute ferry ride out of the city and a short drive the length of Bainbridge Island and across the Agate Pass Bridge into our small Bavarian-themed town of 8,000.
Michael Hall is the President of the firm and started out as a management consultant. During the hard insurance market in 1992, one of Mike’s clients asked if there was anything he could do to help with their insurance rates. The client said, “We are paying more for insurance than we are making in profits!” Six months later Hall & Company was licensed and began providing professional liability insurance. Some good fortune in the early days lead to two very large accounts and introductions to a number of key relationships with Lloyds and Lloyds brokers that are even stronger today.
We have grown steadily to our present size of 41 dedicated employees. There are currently twelve shareholders of Hall & Company, each of them longstanding employees.
Over the years we have outgrown our office space six times and now occupy our own office building and own the adjacent site for our future expansion. We moved into our new office building (featured on the Contact Us page) in May 2008.
We take our staff’s professional development very seriously and every customer service representative and, of course, broker is required to obtain an insurance licensure. We maintain licenses in all states with the exception of Hawaii. Our senior staff have such designations as Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC), Certified Risk Manager (CRM) and Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU), and hold Excess and Surplus lines licenses.
