Welcome to SGP Advisors

Shea Guercio Partners (formally known as SGP Advisors) is an independently owned and operated insurance brokerage with roots tracing back to 1995, when founder Vern Barclay, left a successful career in law firm administration to start the firm. In the early years of SGP Advisors our focus was strictly on lawyer’s professional liability insurance in Florida.

Over the years through strong organic growth and strategic acquisitions, the firm has grown to meet the needs of its clients in the following areas: Professional Liability, Employment Practices Liability, Cyber/Network Security Liability, Property/Casualty Insurance, Group Employee Benefits, Key Man Life Insurance, Individual Disability Insurance and Representation and Warranties Coverage. Additionally, our value-added proposition includes a vast offering of services to include, in-house capacity to conduct risk management audits, claims counseling and advice, policy analysis and a wide range of additional resources that address the everyday issues that arise in your business.

Presently, SGP Advisors proudly serves a wide array of professional service organizations beyond its original law firm niche. Some of these concentrations include Architects & Engineers, Accountants, Physicians, Allied Health Professionals, Real Estate and Title Agents, and many more.
Today, SGP Advisors is a multi-office specialist with a national clientele across all 50 states. Our firm principals have over 60+ years of industry experience. Its unique expertise has placed SGP Advisors in the top tier of insurance brokerages across the United States who dedicate themselves to the professional service industry.
