"With their deep capabilities, focused consultative approach and strong emphasis on cross-selling, the LSG team will be a terrific strategic complement to our U.S. brokerage and consulting operations," said J.

Schreibman added: "For over 50 years, we have focused on the power of partnership with one goal in mind – to be the best possible advisor and advocate for our valued clients. We will be delighted to bring our clients the deep expertise and broad access to products and services Gallagher offers, while maintaining our high-touch, service-driven approach. This will give us the scale, geographic reach and multi-channel network to effectively support our clients as their businesses grow."
