Entertainment & Sports / Sports, Fitness & Leisure

The EPIC team is part of your team. We speak your language, know your industry, and quickly become integral to your success. Our team has many years of combined experience, including members who have served as in-house risk managers and legal counsel within sports businesses. That experience is put to work for you so that you can focus on operating your business and building winning teams.

Our Approach


Our approach to risk management is both comprehensive and specifically tailored to each client. Whether you’re operating a local 5k race or a major international championship, we know your risks and the solutions to manage them. We offer a range of services (beyond the placement of insurance) designed to proactively address your risks before an incident occurs, including:

  • Review of contracts with facility owners, vendors, and other third parties
  • Assistance with waiver and release forms, authorization to provide medical care, and other risk transfer documents
  • Evaluation of event safety plans
  • Application of proprietary technology solutions to support online insurance purchases and issuing certificates of insurance
