It's no secret that the landscape in California's market place has changed dramatically. A few companies stopped writing business, few pulled out of the state. I have compiled a list of carriers I have access to directly or indirectly and was wondering if anyone is doing business with companies I don't have on my list

1) Hartford 
2) Travelers
3) FirstComp/Markel
4) MidWest/Preserver, Star
5) Preferred Employers
6) Employers
7) BHHC/Cypres, Oak River
8) Arrowhead/Everest, Zurich
9) Patriot Underwriters/Zurich
10) AmTrust
11) Guard
12) Zenith
13) Republic Underwriters
14) Insurance company of the West
15) State Fund
16) Chartis
17) QBE

I know there is State National and Southern but I have no access to them. Who did i miss?
