Expert's Profile

Frederick J. Fisher, J.D. is currently President of Fisher Consulting Group and is the Founder of E.L.M. Insurance Brokers, a Wholesale & MGA facility specializing in Professional Liability and Specialty Line risks. In 1975, Mr. Fisher began his career as an Independent E&O claims adjuster. In 1982, he bought the Company, and continued with claims management while expanding the firm’s services to include qualitative Claim auditing, risk management., loss control services, and acting as a TPA.
His claim auditing techniques and recommendations resulted in substantial client savings (including the SCRTD). Many Insurers and self-insured’s adopted not only the performance standards raised in the audits, but adopted his recommended Attorney Management Guidelines as a base, Guidelines which are still in use today by many major insurers and self -Insureds.
 
In 1994 he formed what is now known as ELM insurance Brokers, a firm that has acted as an MGA and wholesale broker of Professional Liability Insurance and Specialty Lines. He has lectured extensively on professional liability issues since 1978, and authored over 64 articles in trade journals and periodicals. He is the author of BROKER BEWARE, Selling Real Estate within the Law. He designed a program to conduct on site pre-underwriting risk management assessments of a clients' professional liability exposures. In 1993, he was elected to the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) Board of Trustees. After serving in all Officer capacities, he was elected President in 1997. He remains a Special Materials Expert for several RPLU courses and as the Senior Technical Advisor for The Professional Liability Manual, first published by the International Risk Management Institute in 1990. In 1990 and 2009, he wrote the definitive articles on the evolution of the Claims Made policy form. The principles and issues raised were used in the IRMI Manuals on Professional Liability, the first RPLU Course Guides, several modules of the revised study materials, and are required reading by many Insurers. Several insurers use the articles as part of their required Claims Made Insurance training programs in Colorado. Mr. Fisher testifies regularly as an expert witness in cases dealing with the duties and obligations of professionals as well as on coverage and claims-made issues.
