Life Sciences

clickhereWorking closely with the life sciences industries since 1983, Gallagher WGA represents over 800 companies today for their risk management and insurance needs. These cutting edge organizations look to the Gallagher WGA team for advice on risk avoidance, risk reduction and risk transfer.

There are many risks in newly developing areas like biotechnology, but the risks associated with developing life sciences firms are manageable through knowledge and experience. Most importantly, the advances in this industry will continue to provide revolutionary rewards for humankind.

As evidence of our expertise, WGA has been chosen by the Biotechnology Industry Organization to develop and promote a series of Property & Casualty programs/risk management services for the benefit of BIO members. BIO members are encouraged to visit or the BIO Business Solutions webpage for more information on the cost saving programs offered by the BIO Business Solutions Program.

This industry is certainly dynamic, and no other insurance broker has more experience to help guide your company to higher profitability. Some areas of expertise include:

  • Products Liability
  • Clinical Trials Liability – both Foreign and Domestic
  • Supply Chain Protection
  • Intellectual Property Protection
  • Directors’ & Officers’ Liability (D&O)

Several of Gallagher WGA’s life sciences clients have recently looked to Gallagher WGA’s Management Liability team for guidance with their D&O programs for their Initial Public Offering. In fact, Gallagher WGA’s Management Liability team has assisted over 60 clients through their IPO process in the past 3 years. Our team has an unsurpassed understanding of the complex issues involving D&O through our experience working with companies in our key industries such as biotech and life sciences. This understanding and experience allows us to use a systematic, well-conceived approach to placing D&O coverage that affords the best value available from the marketplace.
