Casualty risk profiles change almost daily and no two are exactly alike. The legal and regulatory environments constantly evolve. The marketplace fluctuates and exposures only seem to grow in number, scope and complexity. Product liability, mold, asbestos, silica, terrorism, the effect of employee concentration on Workers' Compensation coverage, and risk appetite - these are among the Casualty issues that can weigh heavily on a company's future.

Willis Casualty Placement engages with clients in the formulation, design and execution of both traditional and complex risk management programs to address these risks. We work in the context of your broadest objectives and your risk tolerance. Our rigorous risk evaluation, assessment and structuring techniques are all customized for each client's situation. Through in-depth, ongoing dialogue, we attempt to fully understand your goals, and from this discussion present a variety of alternatives and options that best meet your long-term objectives.

The simple term Casualty describes several complex areas of risk, from Automobile and General Liability to Product Liability and Workers' Compensation. Although often treated separately, we believe that these exposures are best approached with a pragmatic, cohesive strategy. The Willis Casualty Practice has the insight, experience and resources to accomplish this difficult and crucial goal.

We share directly with you not only new Willis products, but product news, coverage news, carrier news, and other timely updates; and, through our newsletters and white papers, in-depth analysis of emerging risks, market events and trends. In the Willis marketing model, the team that devises a risk management strategy approaches the markets on your behalf. This keeps you close to the process and helps bring about the best possible placements.
