We are architects of success.

Acquired by NSM back in 2014, PUA specializes in professional liability for architects and engineers, design-build professionals and contractors. As a result of NSM’s resources, leverage and A+ rated carrier relationships, PUA has tripled its premium since the acquisition.

M&A partnerships

“NSM has been a tremendous partner and has given us the critical resources to grow, including talent acquisition, IT/operations and data analytics support. Additionally, NSM has helped us develop excellent relationships with not only our agents but with our carrier partners. Our main objective was always to underwrite profitable business, and NSM has helped us refine our book and focus on the top A&E specialty retailers across the nation while also building great culture where hard work is rewarded.”
