We know Insurance. We represent companies that cover the Fortune 1000 in complex, high-exposure insurance, reinsurance, and claim recovery disputes. Our clients rely on our reputation for success in high-risk, high-profile cases to reinforce their own reputations and client relationships. Our insurance lawyers have a nuanced understanding of our clients’ policy-based business risks and legal exposure that comes from our long-term, loyal service to the industry. We also provide strategic, effective representation in alternative dispute resolution proceedings like arbitrations, reference and appraisals, and mediations. Whatever the forum or dispute, our insurance attorneys can call upon both an internal staff of investigators and a team of external experts who are always at-the-ready to advise or testify. Through decades of courtroom success, we have earned industry leadership and respect while helping clients thwart exposures that come from unanticipated losses.
