CJ Coleman & Company has operated as a Lloyd's broker since its formation in 1973 and has specialised in professional liability and related insurance coverages, on both a direct and reinsurance basis, for global clients.
In the late 1980s the company established Coleman Sperryn-Jones & Partners to support professional liability programmes for international consulting engineers and architects and Coleman Layton-Cook to support UK professional liability programmes. These were subsequently merged into the Lloyd's broker.
With the formation of Coleman and Cullum in 1995 the group expanded further, developing directors' and officers' liability and banks business. Closely allied to Coleman and Cullum is the majority shareholding in Stateside Underwriting Agency Inc, which underwrites speciality lines of insurance.
In 1996 Coleman & Large was formed to provide expertise in the highly specialised area of liquidated damages insurance.
In 2001 Coleman Claims Services was formed as a new division of C J Coleman & Company to handle outsourced business for both insurers and brokers.
In 2003 Coleman and Cullum consolidated with C J Coleman & Company to form one cohesive broking and client servicing team.
MAIN LINES OF BUSINESS
Professional indemnity/errors and omissions insurance, medical malpractice insurance, cyber liability insurance, and pension fund trustees insurance.
