LOUISIANA – Higginbotham, an independent insurance and financial services firm, has partnered with Mike Knotts, an insurance agency owner and broker in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Based in Texas, the partnership establishes Higginbotham first brick-and-mortar in the state of Louisiana.

The partnership adds a ninth state to Higginbotham’s footprint and gives the company specialty expertise in group captive insurance programmes focused primarily in the transportation industry.

Mike Knotts has a similar loyalty to clients, keeping them ahead of the curve by offering outside-the-box methods of mitigating risk that put the best interests of clients at the forefront.
