Gallagher’s specialist residential property broking business, Deacon, will be rebranded as Gallagher on 5 December. Deacon became part of Gallagher when it was acquired by the firm in 2013 and employs a team of over 50 insurance professionals.  

Deacon was established in 1989 and specialises in buildings insurance for residential blocks of flats and buy-to-let properties. From two flats in a converted house to more than 200 in a purpose built block, including estates and listed buildings, standard and non-standard construction, the business currently provides cover for properties worth over £15 billion across the UK.

Clients will continue to have the same day-to-day contacts at the firm, who understand their individual insurance requirements, but will benefit from trading under the Gallagher brand which is well established globally and in the UK.

Commenting on the rebrand, James Collins, Managing Director said: “Deacon has been part of Gallagher for almost 10 years and having our team operating under the Gallagher brand will give us a springboard for further growth within the property sector. Clients can be reassured that our existing team remains in place and they will continue to receive the same high quality service from the individuals they know, that understand their insurance needs, and who will continue to provide the same levels of commitment and service across underwriting, claims, operations and account management.”
