Commercial: Mid-Continent Group offers expertly-crafted insurance solutions for businesses that have potential for severe claims. Our specialty is general liability protection for well-run businesses in tough industries that find needed coverage is often hard to place. Specialty general liability is offered on an admitted as well as non-admitted basis. We take a disciplined underwriting approach and provide unparalleled access to our decision makers. This, combined with expert claim-handling, has allowed us to offer a consistent and stable solution to our agents and insureds over the long term. Our commercial general liability product is complemented by our offerings in umbrella, commercial auto and inland marine protection. (Learn more…Specialty Commercial and Excess and Surplus.)

We use this understanding to tailor the right surety solution for you. Construction contract surety is our specialty. (Learn more…Surety Bonds.)
