Rich Vazquez

Managing Director, Hotaling Insurance Services

Rich Vazquez is an insurance specialist that has been practicing in the New York City area for the past 10 years. Richard’s practice has always been to deeply understand his client’s businesses so that he can provide solutions that streamline with the other advisors his clients work with, such as their CPAs and Attorneys and Bankers. Almost two years ago a few clients had some unique business opportunities and were early participants with early stage Cannabis and Hemp companies that were growing. Each client had a unique situation, from geographic restrictions and local regulations to basic commercial insurance needs and identifying carriers that would best protect their business interests. This is where we have focused in on solutions within the Cannabis industry. Rich can provide services for insurance coverages that span from seed to sale and cover: General Liability, Products Liability, Buy-Sell Agreements between Owners, Commercial Property, Business Property & Equipment, Business Interruption, Excess Liability, Builder’s Risk, Crop Insurance, Special Event, Professional Liability, Management Liability, Worker’s Compensation, and more. Richard also enjoys networking with other professional services providers across the United States to continue to identify new solutions, especially as regulation changes.
