Public Entities

From the time Eastern Shore Associates was founded in 1986, public entity insurance and risk management has been a primary focus.  Presently our Public Entity Unit is servicing hundreds of insureds including Counties, Cities, Towns, Villages, Public School Districts, Fire & Ambulance Departments and Special Districts. 


Public entities face many challenges which make it essential that their officials look for opportunities to control cost, manage risk and maintain quality services. 


At Eastern Shore Associates, we utilize a team approach to account servicing.  To facilitate the servicing of this particularly unique market segment, we’ve established a dedicated Public Entity unit staffed with individuals who work exclusively with public entity risks.  Our staff combined has decades of experience and knowledge in this sector.  Our team approach allows us to combine the expertise of our team members to problem solve and facilitate a more focused approach to account servicing. 


In addition to our dedicated Public Entity Unit, we use specialized insurance companies that offer the necessary insurance coverages as well as risk management programs that are second to none.  Together we can provide a complete risk management program including contract reviews, loss analysis, risk transfer and remediation recommendations, and specialized training courses.  Some of these training courses can be used to comply with regulatory requirements.   


We are here to help public entities fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities and provide a sound, stable and cost-effective insurance program.  Please contact us today.

Why We're Different

There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all insurance policy.

While most insurance products are similar in price and function, insurance providers are very different when it comes to structuring a policy that actually covers you.

We’re your neighbors. We protect businesses and people we know and care about, and that means we look for ways to protect you better, including carefully choosing the insurance companies we represent.

We desire to be a client-focused agency that is recognized as a trusted insurance advisor in our communities. We value long lasting relationships with our clients, built on a commitment to excellence, continual improvement and a high standard of customer service.

Contact us today and we’ll get to work finding the right fit for you. What matters to you, matters to us.
