About Envoy Specialty™

Each claim presents its own unique challenge, but there are few one-size-fits-all solutions.  Envoy Specialty™ is designed to help identify areas where we can help your company resolve its more complicated and harder-to-navigate claims.  

Envoy Specialty's team has extensive experience handling a wide array of claims arising on primary and excess Commercial General Liability (CGL) policies, Environmental, Professional Liability, and Contractors Pollution insurance policies (see our services).  

When claims arise policyholders and insurance companies need a team in place that is prepared to respond efficiently and effectively.  And because every type of problem is unique, Envoy Specialty™ works with each client to customize and individualize a program that meets your corporate needs.

Whether it is one claim or many, if the claim involves a catastrophic injury, property damage or construction defect, or if it involves a gradual pollution or a sudden release, we have what it takes to respond to each claim quickly, logically and cost effectively.  We also work hard to preserve our clients' business relationships and corporate reputation.   


Envoy Specialty™ has a reputation for delivering unparalleled service and client satisfaction.

Please contact us today to schedule a consultation and discuss how we can help.
