About Us

"People deserve insurance done right."


Insurance Risk Partners, LLC (“IRP”) was formed by three industry veterans, Paul Brown, David Brown, and Patrick Truhlar. They were previously colleagues at a technical, segment-focused independent insurance agency that would have ranked among the Top 100 U.S. Independent Insurance Agencies based on premium volume.

Our client roster includes private equity-backed firms, publicly-traded utilities, energy transportation, oil & gas and midstream, renewable energy, and various international and other infrastructure-focused companies.


Your IRP team is here when you need us, and we want to make your job – not ours – easier when it comes to managing and transferring risk. You can expect a sense of urgency from us. You deserve a team committed to a high standard of service and professionalism. In the event of a claim, you can expect a prompt assessment, detailed information gathering, and follow-through.

Our independence allows us to focus on you while providing the consultative insurance solutions, claims advocacy, and technical support you deserve.



Whether you're our neighbor, or a world away, our team speaks your language. Export our expertise to wherever you need it most.
