BIGGEST RISK with Johnny Merritt

Commercial Real Estate Pro Network

J. Darrin Gross: Johnny Merritt, what is the biggest risk? Johnny Merritt   Very sincerely in this comes from my relationship with this $1.52 billion company that I've represented for over two decades. I think the greatest risk of business has is not having a good relationship with an insurance person. There are a couple of, as general counsel, what what you what you've learn to do, is you, your're a generalist.  You provide those services that the the business typically would need.  You review contracts, you you attend board meetings to you. You look at real estate transactions. But then then you get calls on for instance, intellectual property. But that's when you call them the expert. They're all there are a handful of people that I that I rely heavily upon. One is accountants. And you need to be able to call your accountant. Another one again, for my clients, I have a great IP attorney and intellectual property attorney. But I also have a an insurance broker, that, frankly, I am in constant contact with.  Weekly is probably an exaggeration, but it's over four times a month, it is I believe strongly that that you that every business needs to have a relationship with somebody who understands can they can recall and rely upon.  And in frankly, this comes from experience, we represented an entity that did not have enough insurance. And in it, we found ourselves with a substantial liability, they had not allocated the kind of using your formula did not evaluate the risk properly. They had not and then they had not allocated or taken care of. So I it sounds like it's so self serving in your favor. But it's just the truth is is having just like having a great attorney, and having a great accountant. You need to have a great insurance person who you trust to who you understand is not just out to sell insurance, but is there to help you protect and minimize your risks.
