Jackson Sumner & Associates (JSA) has acquired Landers Underwriting of Charlottesville, Va., in a deal inked earlier this month. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

JSA is an excess and surplus broker that began in 1981 in Boone, N.C. It offers a range of insurance products including property, casualty, automobile, garage, professional liability, workers’ comp and personal lines.
