First Environment has been providing specialty environmental services to insurance companies and their insureds for both the residential and commercial market for more than 27 years. Our insurance industry experts have provided technical consultation to hundreds of analysts, complex directors, assistant vice presidents, and attorneys for more than 750 pollution claims ranging in cost severity from less than $100,000 to up to 15 million dollars.
First Environment can independently and effectively support a broad range of insureds on their environmental issues at the recommendation of insurance carrier while keeping the carrier informed of important substantive, regulatory, and costing issues. We manage each environmental issue in a manner for consensus by both the carrier and the insured. For example, on pollution matters, each closure option is thoroughly vetted and all associated costs are evaluated. First Environment routinely develops site investigation and remedial options, feasibility analyses, exit strategies and detailed task-based cost estimates to allow stakeholders to decide on the best site closure strategy. We also have project management procedures in place to ensure quality project performance, schedule and budgets compliance, and stakeholder coordination. We have a great deal of project experience working with insureds and insurance carriers on projects ranging from simple to complex. In addition, we support carriers in assessing site liabilities during the underwriting process. We are committed to providing unmatched customer service to the insurance industry by delivering assessments in a 72-hour period and working closely with insurance professionals and analysts to review documents.
