Architect & Engineers

Design Professionals bear considerable risk, no matter how careful. With heightened risk comes the need for unique solutions tailored to your needs.

Architects & Engineers

At Ames & Gough, our professional staff has worked for architect and engineer professional liability insurers, served as general counsel for architects and engineers, served on the boards of major architect/engineer firms, and is widely published on architect/engineer risk management issues. We serve dozens of the ENR Top 500 firms. No other broker can match our partners’ combined years of architect/engineer professional liability insurance and risk management experience.

This experience, when combined with our CLIENT FIRST approach to service, is why Ames & Gough is the leading national insurance broker and risk management consulting firm dedicated to serving architects and engineers. The average Ames & Gough partner has more than 26 years of experience, most of it specific to the risks you face.

The scope, dedication, and responsiveness of Ames & Gough’s professional services are unmatched. That’s why our annual client retention rate is so exceptional. Our focus is on understanding your business and helping you manage risk in a way that increases your firm’s success and profitability. Our services include:

  • negotiation and placement of integrated, cost-effective property, casualty, and professional liability insurance programs; and
  • in-depth risk management and loss prevention analysis and training.

Much of what differentiates us from other brokers involves our industry-specific risk analysis and loss prevention.

From our offices in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Orlando we serve clients in all 50 states and consult on risk issues around the world. And we have professional relationships with every major insurer providing professional liability insurance to architects and engineers.
