Hammond, Martin, Walsh & Smith Inc. can trace its roots to the founding of J.P. Hammond Company of San Francisco in 1908. We are a full service general insurance brokerage that specializes in all aspects of media and entertainment insurance. We have worked with clients as varied as Charles Schulz, Lucasfilm, Smuin Ballet, Theatre on the Square, Mavericks, Imogen Cunningham and many, many others. We have been asked to participate on panels for Washington Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, AICP, Women in Film, Film Arts Foundation and other industry organizations.

The insurance industry has seen many changes since 1908, but one thing has remained the same is the need for an experienced staff to determine needs, market the account, and handle claims . We pride ourselves in our ability to use our experience to provide coverage to our clients based upon their needs as opposed to merely selling a stock package off the shelf. We also respond quickly to the critical needs of existing clients.

So whether you need coverage as a producer or a party planner, an event promoter or an equipment rental company, deal with the internet or independent productions, are an author or a post production facility or any of the myriad other entertainment related firms.
