The insurance marketplace is very broad and while many are familiar with health, auto and life insurance products, the overall market is comprised of thousands of different insurance products. Different professions require different policies and underwriting guidelines and specific industries such as lawyers, architects and accountants have insurance policies geared just for their profession. Couple that with the fact that you can insure anything for any reason through Lloyd’s of London and it makes for a very complicated marketplace. As a business owner in general, you should be familiar with professional and executive liability insurance and our guest on this segment was Michael Shea who is the President of Shea Barclay Group where they specialize in this line of insurance products.
Mike is a native of Tampa and second generation insurance agent. After a brief career in the banking industry, Mike accepted a sales position at Thaxton Barclay Group. The firm, at the time, specialized solely in professional liability for law firms. Prior to coming on board, Thaxton Barclay Group consisted only of two partners, with no employees, operating only in Florida. Mike was responsible for the firm’s geographic expansion and quickly grew our client base on a national level. In July of 2012, Mike acquired a majority interest in Thaxton Barclay Group and took over as President. As President, Mike has expanded the operations through new product implementation, various association engagements and additional sales associates. The firm’s growth continues to be ahead of most industry metrics.
Today, Shea Barclay Group, formerly Thaxton Barclay Group, maintains 1,200+ clients in over 40 states.
Founded as an insurance provider to lawyers, their main focus and expertise today still revolves around that industry. Mike has spoken on many topics related to law firm risk management through local and state bar associations, as well as, state trial lawyer associations. He has had articles on law firm risk management published in multiple periodicals.
