Helping Business Contractors Secure Surety Bonds

Bonding is a critical link in your firm’s ability to maximize profits. At J. Smith Lanier & Co., we work with individuals and businesses across the country to secure surety bonds. Working with companies in any industry, our Surety Department understands the need for contractors to obtain a bond line with reasonable terms and conditions.

The JSL Surety Department will gather your unique set of facts - your firm’s history, organization, and financials - to find the bonding company that is the best fit for you. In the vernacular, we find that the bond company is “buying” what your firm has the most to sell. Having established this relationship, we work with you and the bond company to nurture and strengthen this valuable tool.
