Berkley DP was started in 2013 by a team of people with deep
roots in underwriting, loss prevention and claims handling for the
Design Professional community. The genesis of Berkley DP was
the combination of our team's passion for bringing fresh ideas to
the products and services Design Professionals need together
with W. R. Berkley Corporation's desire to commit its superior
financial strength and A+ rated paper to this industry segment.
Berkley DP's motto is: "Better by Design." By this we mean that
our policyholders are better businesses because we've designed
comprehensive coverage and current risk management solutions
that make their practice less susceptible to loss.
Berkley DP differentiates itself from its competitors in several ways:
- First, we are a company dedicated to the Design Professional industry with the autonomy to make decisions and act quickly in serving our policyholders and their agents.
- Second, we are able to offer truly unique coverage that our policyholders need and not just something every other carrier offers. The underwriting staff combines over 100 years of experience specifically serving Design Professionals.
- Third, we bring Loss Prevention and Risk Management capabilities from real industry practitioners - people who've actually been Architects and Engineers and know how to mitigate the professional risks of running a Design Firm.
- Finally, we provide fair and friendly claims services from a group of claims professionals who are dedicated to our business, experienced in managing Design claims and willing to listen and communicate both with our policyholders and their agents.
Berkley DP works with a select group of retail brokers throughout the country that specialize in representing design professional firms. Our retail broker partners understand your business and can deliver risk management and loss prevention programs that will assist your firm in avoiding professional claims while also improving your business practices.
