Gallagher entertainment insurance experts have the experience, knowledge and global relationships to consult and cover all aspects of the entertainment industry.

Insurance coverage for the future of the entertainment industry

The entertainment business is undergoing rapid change. As consumers now have the power to watch movies from their phones while streaming news on their desktops, the industry has more opportunities and faces entirely new risk profiles. Gallagher is ready to help our clients navigate through this new world with confidence.

Keeping the business of entertainment running

A million things can go wrong in the creation of content. From personnel to equipment to exposure to weather, it's essential to have insurance programs that take into account these complexities to keep production up and running. Gallagher is a leader in all aspects of entertainment insurance. Our approach guards our clients from the unknown risks and potential exposures associated with motion picture, film and television production.

Anticipating risks in the entertainment industry

Gallagher understands how overlapping risks impact all stages of production. Our knowledge of the entertainment insurance and risk management industry allows us to anticipate and discover gaps in coverage that shield against loss and protect staff and intellectual property. We build a strong web of coverage for pre-production, production, post-production and release.
