William Gallagher Associates (WGA) has been working as a broker to manufacturing
firms since our start in 1983. In that time we have developed specialized services
for areas of risks affecting manufacturers including coordinating coverage for extensive
global property schedules, assisting with the determination of business interruption
limits, quantifying contingent business interruption exposures, providing claims
management, analyzing environmental exposures, as well as providing expert advice
in all areas of liability, including products liability.
