 Oakbridge Insurance Agency LLC (Oakbridge), one of the largest independent insurance and risk management agencies in the Southeast, today announced a new partnership with Grimes Insurance and Financial Services, an independent agency with offices in Duluth, Georgia. The partnership supports the agency's continued Southeastern expansion.

Grimes Insurance and Financial Services has supported its clients since 1976 with asset protection and growth solutions spanning commercial, personal and specialty insurance lines.

"We are excited to welcome Grimes Insurance and Financial Services as our newest partner," said Oakbridge CEO Robbie Smith. "The team at Grimes has been remarkably successful at building and cementing their reputation for superior client service nationally through strong carrier relationships and specialty business programs. Their commitment to their clients, each other and to growing their business make them an ideal partner for Oakbridge."

The partnership provides both firms with access to a broader pool of resources, industry knowledge and niche expertise across commercial, personal and specialty insurance lines.

"We strive to be the one source for your insurance needs irrespective of your size or business, which dovetails nicely with Oakbridge's approach," said David Yoak, Grimes principal.

As part of its specialty insurance lines, Grimes provides coverage in 45 states for apprenticeship schools and dentist offices.

"Our book of business and how we manage our shop is very much in alignment with Oakbridge," Yoak added.
