Phillips, a licensed professional engineer with experience in underwriting, loss prevention, and claims, provides property damage claims consulting services to the manufacturing, hospitality, real estate, and technology sectors. His experience encompasses catastrophic claims arising from hurricanes, earthquakes, and the terrorist events of 9/11. All told, he is responsible for the recovery of $1.5 billion in property and business interruption losses.
"In large loss situations, accurate assessment and resolution of property losses positively influences the business interruption outcome," said Phillips. "At Dempsey Partners, I will help clients establish and document structural, mechanical, improvements, and contents losses to facilitate claims resolution, including business interruption and extra expense elements. Unlike many forensic accounting, risk consulting, and 'dispute' services providers, Dempsey Partners has no conflicts with insurance companies because we simply do not work for them. We work only for risk managers."
Dempsey Partners has diversified its loss accounting practice to provide additional value to clients. In addition to property damage and business interruption claims consulting, the company offers MegaLoss Disaster Recovery (DR) services; X-V Analysis®, a proprietary business interruption exposure valuation methodology; Forensic Analysis services devoted to occupational fraud claims; and a broad range of consulting services intended to minimize the cost of risk.
