Welcome to Shea Barclay Group

Shea Barclay Group (SBG) is an independently owned and operated insurance brokerage with roots tracing back to 1995, when founder Vern Barclay, left a successful career in law firm administration to start the firm.  In the early years of SBG our focus was strictly on lawyer’s professional liability insurance in Florida.

Over the years through strong organic growth and strategic acquisitions, the firm has grown to meet the needs of its clients in the following areas: Professional Liability, Employment Practices Liability, Cyber/Network Security Liability, Property/Casualty Insurance, Group Employee Benefits, Key Man Life Insurance and Individual Disability Insurance.  Additionally, our value added proposition includes a vast offering of services to include, but not limited to, in-house capacity to conduct risk management audits, claims counseling/advice, policy analysis and a wide range of additional resources that address the everyday issues that arise in your business.

Presently, SBG proudly serves a wide array of professional service organizations beyond its original law firm niche. Some of these concentrations include Architects/Engineers, Accountants, Physicians, Allied Health Professionals, Real Estate and Title Agents, and many more. Today, SBG is a multi-office specialist with a national clientele across 42 states with 50+ years of industry experience amongst its current management and advisors. Its unique experience has placed Shea Barclay Group in the top tier of insurance professionals across the United States who dedicate themselves to the professional service industry.
