Since inception, our proactive management of litigation, claims, and risk management processes are why our results and team stand apart in the market. We more than manage your claims we take expert control from start to finish — advising you on the best next steps in and out of the courtroom. 

Our multi-disciplinary approach capitalizes on state-of-the-art technology and deep experience in law and insurance. GB Healthcare has developed a proprietary RMIS platform called Genesis, which is used by our professionals to manage claims and used by our clients to obtain full visibility of their losses.

More Than Outcomes


We translate the challenges you are facing into solutions that have real impact. We effectively evaluate and manage outside counsel through our deep legal experience, and we independently evaluate our clients' claims — rather than rely solely on outside counsel to assess exposure. 

From negotiating favorable settlements, to implementing proactive risk mitigation tools, we are a complete solution.
