Our lawyers’ insurance coverage experience includes high-profile matters such as the subprime mortgage multi-district litigation claims filed against title insurers, the Hurricane Katrina water exclusion disputes, and the Lincoln Park porch collapse coverage litigation. It also includes the type of coverage disputes that many businesses experience on a more regular basis, whether they involve directors & officers liability, employment practices liability, property and casualty, or third-party liability insurance.
Coverage disputes often begin with negotiations between the insurance company and the insured, and a formalization of each party’s position. During this process, we endeavor to find a resolution that avoids all-out litigation, or failing that, best preserves the client’s position in an eventual lawsuit. And of course, when a resolution cannot be reached, we are experienced at litigating these disputes in court.
