About us

Markel is proud to support small businesses by providing outstanding workers compensation, businessowners policy, and miscellaneous errors and omissions insurance. New businesses, main street businesses, and artisan contractors are our specialty.

We are committed to building a stable, long-standing relationship with our agents and policy holders. While other insurance markets may come and go, we have never left a state in which we were working with independent agents. Our history of profitability gives agents the confidence they need to stake their reputation on Markel as their small business insurance market.
