Fidelity, Surety and Specialty Bonds

Shumaker has a national reputation for its experience in the handling of surety, fidelity and specialty bond claims. We are proud to represent most of the major fidelity and surety companies in the United States.

Our lawyers who practice in this area are members of the Fidelity & Surety Law Committee of the ABA's Torts and Insurance Practice Section ("TIPS") and are actively involved in TIPS meetings and seminars. One of our lawyers was a vice chair of the ABA Fidelity & Surety Committee. Additionally, two of our lawyers are involved in the conception and development of the annual Southern and Northeast Surety & Fidelity Claims Conferences which are designed to educate and update bonding company claims and underwriting personnel regarding all aspects of surety, fidelity and specialty bond law and claims handling. For the past twenty-one years, our firm has co-sponsored these conferences with other prominent firms which practice fidelity and surety law.

Because of the experience we provide, our bonding company clients have found it cost effective to have our lawyers represent them throughout Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, the states in which our offices are located.
