Tenacious advocates defend liability insurers’ policyholders against covered claims
Many insurers trust us to manage claims and represent their policyholders in suits that trigger liability coverage, based on our reputation for doggedness and skill in litigation and settlement negotiation. We are responsive to the needs and concerns of insurers and insureds alike, keeping them fully involved in all case developments and strategy decisions. We rely on our depth of experience in tort law to devise and implement the strongest defenses possible under the circumstances.
Knowledgeable attorneys advise insurers and litigate coverage questions
Coverage questions abound no matter how comprehensively and carefully policies are written. Policy exclusions, definitions of triggering occurrences, issues of joint liability and classifications of damages can be fertile ground for disputes. Suspected insurance fraud often further complicates the decision on a claim’s legitimacy. We have decades of experience representing insurers on claim coverage questions, both in an advisory capacity and in resolution of disputes with policyholders. When needed, we seek declaratory judgments in court that a claim is not covered or that coverage is limited in scope.
Defending insurance companies and brokers against bad-faith claims or malpractice
When insurance companies deny coverage or offer a settlement that the insured believes is too low, the company may face a lawsuit charging that it acted in bad faith through unreasonable neglect, deliberate misrepresentation or other means. We provide a vigorous defense to these suits and also counsel our insurance clients on adopting best practices to limit exposure to such claims. We also defend insurance agents and brokers against charges of professional malpractice for allegedly failing to obtain appropriate coverage.
Effective solutions with your best interests in mind
Although we are known for our ability as litigators, we understand that going to court is not always the best option. We are committed to choosing more cost-effective ways of resolving your problems whenever possible. Our attorneys routinely turn to arbitration and mediation as means to decide and settle disputes at significantly reduced cost, with your company’s best interests in mind.
