Insurance Coverage and Litigation
Our Insurance Coverage and Litigation Group represents many of the major insurers in the United States and we take great pride in protecting their interests in a legislative and judicial environment that frequently seems to encourage exploitation by both policyholders and third-party claimants.When retained as coverage counsel, we conduct a rigorous analysis of the insurance policy to determine the scope and extent of our client's obligations in the context of investigating all pertinent facts and circumstances.
Our dual objectives are to ensure that our clients honor all commitments under their policies without being misled, pressured or otherwise compelled to make any unwarranted payments. To that end, our attorneys possess years of experience in coverage analysis and investigation, preparing reservation of rights and declination letters, negotiating allocation agreements for defense costs, supervising defense counsel, analyzing liability and exposure, formulating reserve recommendations and devising settlement strategies.
Our attorneys make every effort to avoid coverage litigation where doing so is in the client's interest. When litigation ensues, however, our attorneys vigorously defend our clients in the most aggressive manner possible. We have successfully represented insurers in state and federal courts in connection with coverage disputes in all of our substantive practice areas.
