Albany Lawyers Handling Risk Management Matters

Assisting Risk Managers Throughout New York

Risk managers face the difficult task of handling insurance claims in the present while having to be cognizant of how those claims will affect the company's finances in the future. They also serve as a company's first line of defense against workers' compensation fraud and meritless claims. With millions of dollars in premiums at stake, risk managers are always at the forefront of a company's cost-containment efforts.

At Stockton, Barker & Mead, LLP, we help risk managers shoulder this hefty burden by providing trusted legal advice and effective advocacy. Since our firm's inception in 1994, we have served as a resource to risk managers at many different insurance companies and self-insured companies. We partner with risk managers at all stages of workers' compensation claims to find solutions that resolve the claims in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
