"We hired SmartRisk to help us identify risks and implement best practice procedures to mitigate our liability exposures. Tim performed a risk assessment, developed a risk management manual to guide us in strategies and practices on higher risk project types such as condominiums. He counsels our project managers and helps evaluate contract provisions. Tim advises KFA on insurance coverage and meets annually with our E&O insurance carrier describing program efforts.

However, after meeting Tim and going through the assessment, it opened my eyes to our strengths and what we could do to further mitigate risk. The process was very helpful, obtaining an outside, third party perspective of our risk management efforts.
