Darren Renner is a dynamic client advocate in claim resolution and risk mitigation.
EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants announced today that Darren Renner has joined as senior vice president of risk mitigation and claims. In this role, he will oversee claims and risk mitigation in private client and entertainment and sports practices. He will also oversee the claims and risk mitigation services for EPIC Select, which provides insurance consultation services to advisory practices and their clients.
Based in Greenwich, CT, Renner has built a reputation as an advocate defending various types of liability claims, including personal injury, medical malpractice, legal malpractice and products liability.
For the past 25 years, Renner has engaged in high exposure insurance litigation and mediations, where he has engineered a number of complex settlements. In 2000, Renner joined and later became a partner with the prominent insurance defense law firm of Lustig & Brown, LLP, focusing on the defense of agents’ and brokers’ Errors and Omissions insurance (E&O) liability claims and the defense and prosecution of insurance coverage lawsuits. He also provided coverage opinions on a wide variety of insurance coverage issues for both insurers and policyholders. In 2008, Renner joined Keidel, Weldon & Cunningham, LLP as a partner, continuing his practice of insurance litigation and coverage analysis, while expanding his practice to include general commercial litigation.
“We have no greater priority than alignment with our clients immediately after a loss. We are pleased to have an accomplished professional like Darren join EPIC and assume a leadership role in this critically important responsibility,” said Tim Brenneman, President of the EPIC Private Client Practice. “While post-claim advocacy will always be a major focus, it is also becoming increasingly clear that with the dramatic impact of climate change, simply responding after a loss will not be enough. Clients will expect and need insurance advisors to help identify exposure to loss before a claim occurs, and offer mitigation strategies to minimize those risks.”
