Fantastic job on your report! I reviewed it early yesterday morning when we were preparing to serve our discovery responses and had no changes or questions. I was really impressed with your thorough analysis of the issues of the case, and you raised some strong arguments that I had not considered or delved deeply into yet. I really appreciate your perspective and work on this matter.

I wanted to let you know I retained Ty Sagalow to act as an expert on the broker malpractice case I am handling. He did a first class report and identified an issue that I had not thought of before. His opinion on that issue could be a game changer in favor of the Firm client. Thank you for recommending him.
For over 20 years, I have worked closely with Ty Sagalow. I consider him to be a good friend and colleague. At National Union, we worked together on many new creative deals as well as new products together and now at Ironshore I am pleased to be able to draw on his expertise in product development.
Ty is one of the most creative and smart dealmakers in the industry. He has the rare ability to listen to his clients needs, understand the views of the other stakeholders, and arrive at a resolution that supports his client’s profitability and long term goals. I am privileged to be able to work with him and call him my friend.
It is a true pleasure to recommend Ty Sagalow, who I have known professionally for more than a decade. Ty is an exceptional person and worker. Rarely in my 3 decades of business life have I found someone who combines his in depth knowledge of his subject area with his personal skills, his creative problem solving and his energy as completely as Ty does. An exceptional person and professional.
Ty, I have no doubt your report was instrumental in moving the defendant up in the zone of reasonable settlement. They initiated these discussions [right] after getting your report. Thank-you.

We are pleased to to report that our firm has concluded that Ty Sagalow was our most helpful expert witness in our successful $8.7 million policyholder victory against the insurer of our client, Illinois Agricultural Association.
Our client sought insurance coverage under a management protection policy for an arbitration award entered in favor of former insurance agents. Defendant insurance company denied coverage, without considering all coverages in the policy.
On summary judgment, the court held that the arbitration award was covered by the policy. The court awarded $7 million, plus interest totaling $8,666,293. Thank-you Ty for your expert services to us and our client.
Hope this finds you well. Thanks again for your excellent report. I am attaching the expert witness designation of our co-defendants’ for your review. Please let me know if these have any bearing on your opinions. They agree with you, so I doubt they will.
Thanks in advance,

I have had the good fortune to know Ty for over 30 years, first as an insurance carrier executive with whom I have done business and now as a trusted consultant to the Newman Team at Aon plc. He is, in my opinion, the top product development person in the industry. He has the unique ability to take new ideas, whether from a carrier, a broker or a client, and turn them into actual insurance products and solutions in a very quick, efficient and cost effective manner.
One of Ty’s greatest attributes is his ability to listen to a client, understand their needs and address that need with an innovative solution.
I can strongly recommend Ty to any person or company, of whatever size or industry, who is looking for unique insurance solutions to their needs or for the needs of their customers.
Ty, I am pleased to inform you that we completely won our arbitration with XXXX. As you can see, the Arbitrator 100% adopted our arguments. XXX and I want to thank you for your invaluable assistance on this case. If you are ever in Los Angeles, please call me so we can have a celebratory drink or dinner together.
