New Dawn Risk joins a/e ProNet to support US design professionals

New Dawn Risk has become a member of a/e ProNet, a leading network of independent insurance brokers specializing in the professional liability insurance and risk management needs of professional architects and engineers in the US. Membership of a/e ProNet is by invitation only.

Max Carter, CEO of New Dawn Risk, said: “This is a critical time for architects and engineers in the US. Even before the COVID-19 outbreak we were seeing upward pressure on premiums combined with an increase in both the volume and severity of claims, due in part to legal costs and awards inflation. Now those pressures are even greater, so there has never been a better time for us to share our expertise and creativity in professional liability risks with the US design industry.”

Dave Johnston, Executive Director of a/e ProNet, said: “We are delighted to welcome New Dawn Risk to the network. Their experience in placing complex liability and other specialty risks in all major markets worldwide will benefit our members as well as architects and engineers looking for risk transfer solutions across the US.”
