What our partners say
The partnership we have with James Hallam is excellent. The senior team has a clear understanding of our business, is wholly respectful of our independence and supports our business ambition. Talisman operates across complex multi-territory markets and as a Lloyd’s Broker James Hallam is able to offer us both Lloyd’s and composite market capabilities. Access to excellent in-house resources has also enabled me to build an entirely service-focused team, which frees us to concentrate our time and expertise on clients and their business needs.

James Hallam has been the ideal choice of principal broker for Blackford to partner with. Put simply, they ‘get it’. Their professional and traditional approach to broking provides our firm with the stability, resource, and confidence to transact business at the standards we require. The team at Blackford feel very much part of a larger family – where a shared ethos and similar values encourage people to do the right thing. We enjoy friendly and proactive support from their IT, agencies, compliance and accounts teams and have been afforded the space to integrate our own brand and identity into the wider group.

When we first started Liability & General Insurance Brokers Ltd, we met with several other local and national brokers and discussed their AR agreements. We found that the James Hallam Ltd partnership program to be a perfect fit. They offered as much or as little support as we requested, this has not changed in the 6 years we have been working together. By working with James Hallam Ltd and utilising the back office support they provide, we are able to concentrate on growing our client base and are able to offer a high level of customer service. We would highly recommend the James Hallam Partnership Program to new starting brokers and also to those looking for a different option.

I would recommend a partnership with James Hallam, without hesitation. As a business, we have benefitted from the relationship with James Hallam over many years – with access to their in-house resources and support, we are able to focus on our clients and building our business. Through their agency base, we are able to access a range and variety of insurers, including Lloyds, that would be difficult to do so otherwise. They understand, and importantly, support our business goals across both commercial and private clients.

We couldn’t be more grateful for the support we have received from James Hallam and their partnership programme. As a start-up broker, Capsule needed a sensible approach to starting the relationship. We were able to select the exact amount of support that we required and the whole way through they have been proactive in helping us with everything from compliance, back office and IT training. We immediately benefitted from being part of the Seventeen Group network and has given us the ability to focus on launching Capsule!
Thanks to Roy, Glyn and all the wider team.
