Champlain is affiliated with WestCongress Insurance Services LLC (“WC”), a specialty, surplus and excess lines insurance producer that offers primary and excess general liability insurance solutions throughout the United States for targeted small and middle market risks in the energy, artisan contractor and security industries.

Champlain is also affiliated with WestCongress Risk Services LLC (“WCRS” and together with WCIS, “WestCongress”), an experienced claims administrator that administers all claims arising under business bound by WCIS. WCIS was established in 2015 as a managing general agency with a “carrier mindset.” A driver of WCIS’s formation was the executive team’s understanding that larger carriers were narrowing their focus to larger risks within the E&S arena, leaving many small and middle market risks without viable market alternatives.

WCRS has implemented the following procedures and resources:

  • Best Practices
  • Claim File Report templates
  • File Peer Review
  • Form Letters & Authorizations
  • Insurance Department Complaint Process
  • Litigation Management Guidelines
  • Panel Lists
  • State Summaries
