Insurance Coverage Litigation: We represent policyholders in all phases of insurance coverage litigation, including choice of forum and choice of law, breach of contract and declaratory judgment actions, bad faith claims, discovery, trial and appeal, dispositive motions and settlement negotiations.
Pre-Dispute Counseling: We evaluate current insurance coverage and ensure that proper notice is given to produce applicable insurance coverage, identify potential gaps in coverage and coordinate with a policyholder’s insurance broker to provide insight into possible legal issues. We can also assist in formulating effective contractual provisions and following up with contractors to maximize protection.
