BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Reprints

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. has acquired Pewaukee, Wisconsin-based employee benefits consulting firm Burkwald & Associates Inc.

Burkwald is a management and employee benefits consulting firm that provides group employee benefits and consulting services to Midwest commercial and public entity clients in the Midwest, Gallagher said Friday in a statement.

Dan Burkwald and his staff of 15 employees will continue to operate from their Pewaukee location and report to William Ziebell, Gallagher's north central employee benefit consulting and brokerage leader, a Gallagher spokeswoman said Monday.

“Not only do they have a sales culture that matches ours, their team is also focused on high-quality customer service,” J. Patrick Gallagher Jr., chairman, president and CEO, said in the statement of the Burkwald purchase. “In addition, their Milwaukee-area presence and solid industry relationships will be a terrific complement to our expanding employee benefits brokerage and consulting operation.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
