The real estate marketplace for lawyers is constantly in motion.
With that in mind, in 2018, Lawyers Mutual evaluated the landscape, decided to make a move, and started LM Title Agency, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary.
This move did not happen in a vacuum. Extensive analysis was performed as to whether a subsidiary agency would be compatible with Lawyers Insurance and Lawyers Mutual. We had discussions with stakeholders across the state to make sure we would be supported by the Bar. The results were favorable.
In October, the Board of Directors authorized the formation and funding of LM Title Agency, LLC through an asset purchase of Trust Title Agency, LLC in Garner, NC. Michelle Church, an owner of Trust Title, was hired by LM Title as Director of Operations and Troy Crawford was named Managing Counsel.
In November 2018, we opened our doors for business.
Our first priority is the highest level of customer service and dedication to North Carolina’s Real Estate Bar.
Fast forward three and a half years, to Spring 2022. LM Title has completed its most recent asset purchase with the acquisition of Blackacre Title based in Wilmington. With the addition of Blackacre, their longtime underwriter and prior policy searcher, and its longstanding commitment to the State of North Carolina and especially the east coast and Wilmington area, we are excited to have more focus in the eastern part of the State.
Our main priority continues to be providing the highest level of customer service and dedication to North Carolina real estate attorneys and their staff. We achieve this with a dedicated team of professionals working tirelessly to fulfill your binder and revision requests, searching for prior policies, producing policies, and providing monthly educational CLEs and presentations.
We look forward to continuing to grow and provide excellent service to the attorneys of North Carolina.
