Move paves the way for Amity to expand in New Hampshire…

Amity Insurance acquires NHBA Insurance Agency, Inc. book of business in strategic alliance; will be exclusive endorsed agency for professional liability (malpractice) insurance

QUINCY, MA, and CONCORD, NH, ISSUED JANUARY 23, 2019… Amity Insurance Agency, Inc., the region’s leading full service agency, today announced the formation of a strategic alliance with the New Hampshire Bar Association.

The announcement was made by Roy Solomon, President/owner at Amity Insurance, and George Moore, Executive Director at New Hampshire Bar Association.

Under the terms of the alliance, Amity has purchased the insurance agency business from the New Hampshire Bar Association and will now be the Association’s endorsed insurance agency. Previously, the NH Bar Association maintained its own agency as an option for  professional liability (malpractice) insurance for its 7000 members.

Amity will extend the offer to provide professional liability to all of the New Hampshire Bar Association’s members, which is one of Amity’s core offerings. They have provided professional liability to Massachusetts attorneys for more than three decades.

Additionally, Amity will open an office within the NH Bar Center at 2 Pillsbury Street, Concord, NH. The firm will also add a new key employee to its ranks, Sue Morand, who formerly was employed by the NH Bar Association.

“We are delighted to enter into this strategic alliance,” said Justin Kesner, Senior Vice President of Amity’s Legal Professional Liability Division. He said, “With the endorsement of the NH Bar Association, Amity will be able to provide a much broader range of insurance services to NHBA members. Our division which provides insurance products to attorneys will now be able to offer NHBA members access to over 25 different liability insurance companies, and a dedicated service team.”

He added, “Amity already has a presence in New Hampshire and experience in the market. We saw this alliance as a great opportunity for expansion because of our knowledge and experience in the local insurance market in New Hampshire.”

He continued, “We know firsthand the strong reputation that the New Hampshire Bar Association has. They are a first-class organization, and to be able to partner with them and their membership is a privilege.”

David McGrath, President of the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Board of Governors, notes, “Amity is a great fit.  They have an outstanding reputation and deep experience providing coverage options for lawyers, which was very important to us.  We expect this transition will be seamless.”

For New Hampshire Bar Association members, existing policies and coverages will continue in full force. Individuals wishing to contact Amity regarding coverage may contact Sue Morand, smorand@amityins.com, or by phone, 603-715-3204.
