Kim Berdinsky
Sr Director Benefits, Sally Beauty Holdings Inc.

LIG has been a truly fantastic partner for our US-based company with thorough knowledge and guidance in all things Canada benefits and leave management – from compliance, administration and financial management to market competitive analysis and strategic perspectives.

They’ve been especially nimble to our needs in this very trying business environment. As a benefits leader, it has been quite comforting to know that we can rely on LIG to guide us to the right benefit solutions for our Canada associates. And it’s a bonus that they are fun to work with!

Anita Farrell
Controller, Javelin Technologies

Lawrie Insurance Group understands our business and makes appropriate suggestions on insurance to cover our risks. We rely on their team to review contracts & leases and provide valuable insurance guidance.

Their commitment to outstanding customer service, tremendously fast response time, and consistent and excellent services, is the reason we choose LIG. I would gladly highly recommend LIG to anyone who might want to talk with me.

Eric L. Hoffman
President, Activation Laboratories Ltd.

The relationship has been absolutely flawless. Lawrie Insurance Group always manages to help us in choosing the right coverage that matches our risk exposure. We are extremely pleased to recommend their organization to interested parties.

Blair McGibbon
CFO, Ascend Fundraising Solutions, Inc.

Ascend FS has partnered with LIG since 2015 for Risk Guidance and Insurance Services in Canada and Internationally. When negotiating an important contract, we make sure to involve them and are considered part of our team. From the executive team to the service team I am so impressed by how they invest their time in getting to know their clients.

I highly recommend Lawrie Insurance Group to any business looking for a dedicated broker with a professional and personal touch.

Bogdan Frusina
CFO, Ascend Fundraising Solutions, Inc.

The excellence of their (LIG) work has been demonstrated many times by their ability to provide cost effective and timely solutions to our insurance program. Their ability to rapidly handle some difficult problems has been impressive and we have greatly appreciated our working relationship with LIG.

Eric Waxman
Chief Investment Officer, Spark Power Corp

As our business began to grow from a start-up business, we found that our existing broker was no longer able to meet our needs.  We performed a search that included larger regional brokers as well as national and international brokers.  We settled on Lawrie Insurance Group (LIG), and have not regretted our choice.  They are able to provide us with “large” brokerage experience and expertise as well as access to all the same insurance products, but we are always treated like their most important client.

Jim Long
President, Comtrad Strategic Sourcing Inc.

Comtrad has been working with the Lawrie team now for nearly 8 years for all of our insurance and benefits requirements. Their customer service has been excellent and prompt in providing solutions to our evolving and growing business.
