This claim seems to be in dispute according to a news story in today's Valley News Dispatch entitled "Hot dispute."For 29 years, Synaxis Polk & Sullivan has put the interests of clients first. We can draw upon the extensive capabilities of the entire Synaxis organization to meet your needs.
There had been a fire at Freeport Brick on Feb. 2, 2006. In ten days it was clear that the fire had affected the ability of the company to fill orders.
Synaxis Polk & Sullivan of Nashville, Tennessee, who is alleged to have sold Freeport Brick a $4.6 million insurance policy against catastrophic losses has denied that Freeport Brick was covered for this loss. In June Freeport Brick's parent company sued Synaxis Polk & Sullivan for breach of contract.
The news story quotes Freeport Brick's Plant Manager Mike Livingston as saying "We are hoping to get the insurance company to the table."
Synaxis simply wants the lawsuit to be moved to Tennessee.
This sure seems like a strange way to "put the interests of clients first."
The "entire Synaxis organization" is getting smaller. Earlier this month the Synaxis Group sold off two of its insurance companies, Synaxis Van Meter Insurance Agency and Employers Risk Services, to the Bowling Green-based Houchens Industries. As of today, the Synaxis website does not reflect the sale of those units.
