Insurance Agencies...

Insurance agencies are unique businesses that present problems and challenges uncommon to most other businesses. Agencies sell and service products that they never own. An insurance agency benefits from working with a CPA firm which understands the nuances of the insurance business and insurance agencies.

Donovan, Sullivan & Ryan serve as part of a team for many insurance agents and brokers. Our insurance clients range from small agencies to large agencies with millions of dollars in commissions. We have helped our clients face industry restructuring and consolidation. We understand that access to markets, pricing, and technical abilities can play an increasingly important role in customer decisions.

Our many years of experience in working with insurance agencies has afforded us numerous opportunities to work with the aspects of business and financial guidance which would be most beneficial to the future of your insurance agency.
