Insurance Recovery and Counseling

Stages of Representation

We have experience in every phase of the risk management process, including acquiring policies, pre-litigation claims handling as well as litigation and appeal of insurance coverage and bad faith claims.

Policy Acquisition

Selecting the right kind of policies for your business as well as the carriers and coverage amounts has the potential to make or break a company.  Prior to purchasing a policy, consult with us to assist you in measuring your risk and procuring the appropriate kinds and limits of insurance.

Claims Handling

Many policyholders are not aware of their rights when it comes to making claims under their policies.  The actual reporting of a claim has a substantial impact upon how the insurance carrier responds to it, as well as how a Court may respond to a subsequent coverage lawsuit.  We routinely counsel clients prior to reporting claims and by actually taking over the claims reporting and claims handling process.

Coverage Litigation

When the claims handling process does not produce the desired result and a claim is denied, many policyholders have turned to us to litigate these claims in state and federal courts.  Whether it’s responding to a Declaratory Relief action or pursuing a carrier for bad faith, we have the experience necessary to maximize your recovery in a cost efficient manner.

We have experience with all different types of insurance, including:

  • Commercial General Liability (“CGL”)
  • Errors & Omissions (“E&O”)
  • Property and Business Interruption
  • Directors and Officers (“D&O”)
  • Employment Practices Liability (“EPLI”)
