Note to insureds: Tennant Risk Services is a wholesale insurance broker and underwriting manager. As such, we do business with retail brokers (insurance agents). Please have your insurance agent or broker contact us about your professional liability needs, or contact us for specific professional liability insurance questions and information about an agent or broker in your area.  Working with a retail agent or broker provides the best level of service, and does not impact the cost of the insurance.
