Lanigan Insurance Group > History
Founded in 1980 by John Lanigan
Founded in 1980 by well-known Atlantan John Lanigan, Sr., Lanigan Insurance Group has created a trademark name of insurance and financial service. John Lanigan Sr., after graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in risk management, spent his early years working for Johnson and Higgins, and obtained his CPCU designation. He then used this expertise to start LIG in 1980.

John Lanigan, Sr. created a culture of focusing on customer relations and value enhancing service in the Atlanta market that has grown to cover risks all over the United States. The focus and commitment to detail, client contact, and client driven solutions allows our firm to have strong growth and excellent retention in a competitive marketplace.

In 2001, John Lanigan Jr. joins the family business
In 1999, John Lanigan Jr. graduated from the University of Georgia and began his career working for JP Morgan, in New York. In 2001, and in the wake of the tragic September 11th, John left New York and was called to return to the family business. Since that time, John Lanigan, Jr. has completed his CIC, and other advanced, designations to better advise clients in an all-encompassing manner. A distinctive quality John’s clients appreciate in him is his hands-on, concierge approach to risk management & advice.
Over 100 years of Combined Experience
Employees at Lanigan have over 100 years of combined experience and many have enjoyed tenure beyond 15 years. Being a closely-held private business offers our clientele a competitive advantage – notably, closer relationships, more comprehensive risk analysis reviews; services others only aspire to, but don’t deliver.
Since the Day my father founded Lanigan Insurance, we have always made the client a priority and focus on a proactive consultative relationship that will continue years beyond the “sale” of purchasing insurance. So when the decision arises to purchase insurance, it should be as easy as it has for over 25 years – Lanigan.
