Insurance Coverage

Developing effective case strategies for insurance clients requires an understanding of all aspects of insurance policies. Our insurance lawyers serve as both coverage counsel and litigation counsel for our insurer clients. For decades, our attorneys have guided them through the myriad of coverage disputes that arise, including personal, commercial, business, professional, health and disability, as well as excess and umbrella policies.

We carefully evaluate coverage positions to create strategies for a successful resolution including the preparation of coverage opinions, reservation of rights letters, non-waiver agreements and denial letters. This enables our clients to make reasoned and fair decisions concerning their policyholders. When litigation becomes necessary, our attorneys are prepared to litigate coverage issues through trial and appeal, including the prosecution and defense of actions for declaratory relief.
