BRG experts are often retained immediately after a catastrophe to provide advice and guidance to the policyholder in the recovery process and to prepare claims. Our experts analyze detailed financial and accounting records and operations data; develop financial models to assess losses; and prepare insurance claims that are comprehensive and well documented, and support resolution and payment of complex claims.

Policyholders and insurance companies have retained BRG experts in insurance coverage matters to quantify damages, analyze insurance recovery, provide settlement advisory services, and testify in mediations, arbitrations, and trials. With a combination of insurance claims experts, forensic accountants, economists, statisticians, and industry specialists, BRG experts prepare authoritative reports and studies.
