Brad Barkin: Having the Right Insurance Broker for Your Law Firm

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Brad Barkin discuss:

  • Reasons for having insurance and challenges that lawyers face in making those choices.
  • Networking to identify new business and new strategic partners.
  • Being a better provider by going beyond the transaction.
  • The changing landscape of the insurance industry.

Key Takeaways:

  • Always be offering. What goes around comes around.
  • Embracing technology and adapting that technology to your company can be massively helpful for you and your company.
  • Being selfless goes a long way. If you’re helping someone, in more ways than standard, you will be a better advocate for your client.
  • Insurance is not going anywhere, but there is more technology being inserted into the space which will only benefit the consumer.

“If you can be a provider or a source of expertise on something to the industry beyond simply insurance, then you’re instantly a better advocate or a better provider then the next guy.” —  Brad Barkin
