"As the General Counsel of a large firm, I worked with Mario when we were switching our coverage from ALAS to another insurer. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge of the markets, and his knowledge of London. When I was striking out on my own and forming a new firm, I immediately knew I wanted Mario working for me again."
"Working with Lemme is easy. The Lemme team, to a person, has done a great job of understanding us. With everything else we have going on, I don’t want to focus extra time on our professional liability coverage. With Lemme, I know they are sweating the details. I know they will present me with an organized, packaged, well thought out set of solutions that match the needs of our firm."
"Lemme gives us unparalleled care and attention. I feel the personal attention of their senior team. I have no doubt our firm and its unique needs would be lost if we worked with a large broker. Essentially, Lemme cares. Through the work product and interactions, Lemme demonstrates their concern individually for me and collectively for my firm."
"Lemme works hard to save me money, but in the right way. Mario impressed upon me early in our relationship that we needed to take a long-term view. Working to squeeze the last dollar out of insurers each year is not consistent with the value of that relationship."
"Lemme is not a vendor, they are partners with us. I know the respect Mario, Sam, John and Jay have in the professional liability market. The Lemme name has great credibility in this market, too. As a new firm, having Lemme bring us to these markets granted us credibility instantly. Lemme is an unabashed champion of our firm."

"The decision to choose Lemme is based on their deep, extensive knowledge of the insurance market and our needs as a consulting firm. Lemme has thorough knowledge of the markets, the underwriters, the consulting industry and the protections and coverages leading firms need in their professional liability insurance program."
"It’s a pleasure to work with Lemme. I have a comfort level with Lemme, and a confidence that my needs will always be met."
"The Lemme team stays current with the trends in our industry, and actively listens and participates in the dialogue every year. They leverage that knowledge, anticipating our needs and identifying how new developments impact our renewal. This strategy simplifies the complex process of procuring our professional liability insurance program."
"Lemme’s global reach gives the widest array of market solutions available. This fosters real competition within the marketplace, resulting in favorable premium and policy language for Hitachi Consulting."

"In 2003, our firm’s primary professional liability insurer was not able to offer the limits our leadership deemed critical to our risk management program. Lemme stepped up at a critical time for our firm, surveyed the national and international markets on our behalf, and presented competitive options for excess coverage to fill out our program."
"I find Lemme not only responsive to my requests, but also proactive in its service to our firm. Lemme is always thinking ahead, whether its scheduling meetings in London to meet the markets, developing a roadshow to highlight our firm’s strengths, or bringing an underwriter through our office when they are in town. Given the sometimes fickle nature of professional liability markets, it’s valuable to make those personal connections with the insurers in the market. When we are in London working on the renewal, it is very apparent Lemme Insurance Group has the respect of both the brokers and syndicates."
"Lemme begins the process early. With the brokers for most other areas of our insurance program, the renewal is a last minute process of sending a quote and explaining there is not much more they can do on our behalf. On the other hand, Lemme works with the underwriters to ensure we have ample time to evaluate all options. With the terms in hand, Lemme adds valuable insight into the alternatives, and partners with us to determine the best course of action."
"I believe Lemme is the best broker in this market. Their team always impressed me with their presentations and knowledge of our profession at the Major Firms conferences, and the leaders of other firms speak highly of their organization. After working with Lemme for a number of years, I can say my experience proves that reputation was well deserved. The partners who work on my account are knowledgeable, accessible, responsive and do a great job educating us on the program options available each year."
"Lemme does a great job getting us started as early as possible, and guiding us in a way that makes the renewal process relatively painless. In the tough market of recent years, its comforting knowing we are getting expert advice and are seeing the best options available each year. Lemme is well respected in the markets, and enhances our choices in a constantly shifting insurance environment."

As a result, we feel confident that Weiser is presented to the most reputable underwriters and presented in the most appropriate fashion."

"Our firm recently moved its professional liability and employment practices liability insurance programs from a large multinational broker to the Lemme Law Firm Service Team. It was a seamless process and I am confident we made the right decision. We are pleased to partner with a specialist in this highly unique class of insurance and the folks at Lemme have proven themselves to be experts in professional liability insurance. We have enjoyed excellent and responsive client service since becoming a Lemme client and we are thrilled with the results that Lemme was able to achieve for us at renewal. We also appreciated the fact that the Terms Presentation we received from Lemme was delivered over one month prior to our renewal date as this removed the need for any rush decision being made at the last minute. Lemme has delivered exactly what they said they would and I have no hesitation recommending the Lemme Law Firm Service Team as our decision to select Lemme has proved to be the right choice."
Lozano Smith LLP
Our firm switched from a large national brokerage to Lemme Insurance Group, Inc., early this year. As a law firm, we found that Lemme’s expertise in professional services and support for our individual broker, who was newly appointed by them, was exceptional. Early deadlines, adherence to commitments, and timeliness have been impressive. Their assistance has gone beyond the scope of the insurance they placed for us, and Lemme continues helping us to assess and meet business needs.

"When we compare Lemme to other brokers, their professionals stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of the service, knowledge and value they bring to our firm."
"The Lemme team is advisory in their approach. They are not salesy and do not push products, yet they have an opinion and stand behind it while allowing us to be the ultimate decision maker. Lemme's professionals challenge our thinking, help us evaluate options and consider decision factors we may not have come to on our own. For us, working with Lemme is a true partnership."
"Lemme brings the markets to us, both primary and excess. This brings competitively priced options and creative structures that match the requirements of our Firm."
"Lemme delivers unmatched client service. Can't say enough about the results they achieve and how they routinely exceed our expectations. I'm a big fan."
