We provide insurers and insured parties with strategic and cost-effective legal counsel and coverage analysis in matters often involving significant alleged exposure, multiple lines of coverage, and sophisticated legal issues. Our team has litigated complex claims under commercial general liability policies, director and officer policies, errors and omissions policies, and employment policies. Our team also routinely defends litigation brought against insurers for breach of contract regarding property insurance claims and other types of claims. We also handle litigation involving actions for declaratory relief and assist in pre-litigation investigations with respect to coverage issues.
We serve as defense counsel for the insureds of all types of professional liability, errors and omissions, general liability, and product liability matters. Our attorneys have served for decades as counsel on issues of bad faith, indemnification, the separate and distinct duty to defend, reservation of rights, and Coblentz agreements. With our broad expertise, we are able to strategically and cost-effectively handle claims brought against commercial professionals, contractors, subcontractors, and other design professionals in all types of construction related claims, as well as manufacturers and distributors in product related claims. We also routinely defend professional liability claims brought against hospitals, surgery centers, long term care facilities, as well as physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
Our firm often provides counsel to clients prior to an insurance related dispute becoming a lawsuit. We work diligently at litigation avoidance, to the extent possible, which saves our clients’ hard earned dollars. If, however, litigation becomes necessary, we handle such disputes collaboratively and cost-effectively, allowing our clients to focus on their core businesses.
