Custom coverage for every production, any venue

The show can go on if you hire a true specialist. The Risk Strategies DeWitt Stern Entertainment Practice is a top industry leader with a long history of leadership in delivering unparalleled insight and innovative solutions to the entertainment industry. We offer insurance coverage for all areas of property and casualty, professional and financial lines, cyber, and media liability, contingency coverage, and specialized package policies for production and live events.

In a more difficult insurance landscape, our team delivers more than just policies. Employing a high-touch advisory model, we help many of the world’s leading entertainment firms navigate both traditional and new and emerging risk factors, including:

  • Business interruption caused by circumstances outside your control, like civil unrest or natural disasters
  • Inability of a key performer to continue their role in a production of any type
  • Production and usage interruptions for new media and electronic games
  • Threat of ransomware or take-down cyber attack

Our history, clout, and buying power in the market means we can deliver solutions customized for each client in any aspect of the industry: film, television, live theater, venues, dance companies, music, commercial production, documentaries, animation, and even the most cutting edge new media and electronic games.
