The Casualty Coverage practice is part of the firm’s Insurance Division, one of the largest international teams of trial attorneys and business advisors dedicated to the institutional concerns and success of the insurance industry. Our clients cover the spectrum of the insurance industry and include some of the largest casualty insurers and reinsurers in the world.
Lawyers advise insurers on many complex policy coverage issues presented in claims made by regional, national, and multinational policyholders, as well as individuals, on issues as varied as intellectual property, technology, environmental, toxic tort, construction, land movement, employment, defamation and disparagement, and many other types of business losses. The attorneys are experienced in interpreting primary and excess third-party liability policies of all types, including commercial general liability, manuscripted policies, umbrella and excess coverages.
Our coverage advice, and our approach to resolution of coverage disputes, is pragmatic. If a dispute arises between the insurer and policyholder, we strive to find a correct, efficient, and fair solution without litigation, if possible. When coverage litigation is necessary, we vigorously represent our client’s interests. The many trial attorneys on our Casualty Coverage team try and arbitrate coverage matters in state and federal courts throughout the U.S. and in various international tribunals.
