The firm is experienced in understanding and advising insurers and insureds about coverage provided by insurance policies for businesses and individuals.
When a loss occurs or claim is made against you or your business, sorting out insurance coverage can be complex and challenging. Our lawyers have the background and experience to understand the policies, explain them to our clients, and communicate with insurers about why coverage or defense should or should not be provided.
We have represented insurance companies and sued insurance companies. In each instance, we strive to objectively and fairly determine if a defense or indemnity is provided by the applicable policies and the obligations of any insurers whose policies may be implicated by the events.
Our attorneys provide advice and representation on a wide variety of insurance policies and issues, including commercial general liability, property, marine, automobile, homeowners, products liability, professional liability, D&O, umbrella and excess. We are experienced in preparing coverage opinions and handling bad faith and other types of coverage litigation. The firm also handles all indemnification and additional insurance issues related to the nationwide construction work of a publicly-traded conglomerate.
The firm regularly advises and handles litigation involving:
- Coverage among multiple insurers and policies.
- The effect of "Other Insurance" Clauses
- The duty of insurers to "Additional Insureds"
- The duty of insurers under "Contractual Liability" Clauses
- The duty to defend
- The application of exclusions and endorsements to pleadings and facts
