GG Insurance Services is more than just an insurance provider; we are passionate advocates for the gaming community, deeply committed to its success, and dedicated to its protection.
Our journey starts with a profound love for video games. Having worked in the insurance industry for many years, Phil Wildman noticed a gap in insurance expertise and support for the games industry…
As an avid gamer himself, he thought it might be fun as a bit of a “side project” to see if he could figure out how to use his insurance knowledge and connections to better support the industry and learn a bit more about how games were made.
GG Insurance was born, and the first step was to join UKIE, who were very supportive and gave us some sound advice when starting our journey (shout out to Sam Collins). Through their events and networking opportunities, we quickly grew our own network and knowledgebase within the games industry as well as the gaming legal community.
Today we price ourselves on our deep industry knowledge, and are able to way beyond what a normal insurance broker can do in terms of our risk advice, and connections in the industry. Also, with extensive insurance connections we really are in the best possible position to assist.
Whether you are a small independent studio that just wants some risk advice (prevention is the best medicine!), a major AAA studio that needs expert knowledge to translate the risks and liabilities in a complex IP Licencing contract, or a lawyer looking for insurance advice for one of your clients, we are here to help.
