Sedgwick Media and Entertainment, as it will now be known, specialises in film and television production, as well as broadcast, commercials, music, concert touring, theatre, live events, sound, lighting, video and rigging.

The team of specialists, which includes Nick Adams, Ian McDonald, Tim Adams and Dani Vignjevic, works with insurers, brokers, broadcasters and corporates, providing ‘around the clock’ emergency support and dealing with all aspects of incidents and claims, from urgent notification, advice, attendance, investigation, reporting and negotiation, through to resolution and settlement.

Stewart Steel, CEO for Sedgwick in the UK, welcomed the new team, saying: “With our new specialist capability, we are uniquely positioned to handle claims and provide the right team, right technology and right processes to help our clients in the entertainment industry. Sedgwick’s global reach and advanced technological capabilities also make this particular sector a natural fit for our specialist practice.”

Adams, now director of the Sedgwick media and entertainment team, said: “Becoming part of the world’s largest claims management company gives us access to a strong network of professionals which are invaluable for our growth. This is an excellent opportunity for us to expand our client base with Sedgwick’s world class expertise and capabilities.”
