What Our Clients Say

Jack Schmidt and the team at WMB Specialty have a wide range of commercial insurance knowledge, which makes them a great partner to work with for all types of insurance coverages. Rather than treat you with the "cookie cutter" approach, which is all too common, they take the time to understand your business, your clients, and your potential risks. Their common-sense attitude allows them to highlight potential future issues and offer mitigation strategies. The staff is easy to deal with and are always available to assist with any questions or concerns. They provide great service!

Neil S. Jones, President, Live VHD Services

Tom Canning has provided exemplary service to me and the companies that I work with, including CAT Strategic Metals Corp. I have been very happy with the solutions he has been able to provide vis-à-vis Directors and Officers insurance, and Commercial & General Liability insurance for our group of publicly listed exploration mining companies. Tom has always gone out of his way to acquire the most appropriate, competitive, and cost-effective insurance products, and he does everything with a top notch level of service, communication, and professionalism. I fully recommend any organization that has a need for the types of corporate insurance products I have mentioned to engage his services without hesitation.

Steve Cozine, Director & Corporate Secretary, CAT Strategic Metals Corp.

WMB Specialty successfully sourced Directors and Officers insurance coverage for us in a difficult early-stage pharmaceutical sector in an efficient and professional manner. Apex has engaged WMB Specialty to secure clinical insurance moving forward, and we look forward to working with Barzin Assadi and his team for years to come.

Tyler Powell, CEO and Director, Apex Labs Ltd.

Barzin Assadi, Principal of WMB Specialty, was instrumental in the placement of Franchise Global Health's Directors and Officers Liability insurance. Through his knowledge and relationships with international and foreign insurance companies, he was able to find appropriate insurance coverage for our company. Franchise Global Health not only saw a reduced deductible, but also realized a twenty percent cost savings through this placement. I highly recommend any private or publicly-traded company to use WMB Specialty's services and expertise in placing their Directors and Officers Liability insurance.

Cliff Starke, CEO and Director, Franchise Global Health
