A large part of the insurance coverage practice involves consulting and advising our clients with regard to all types of insurance coverage issues as well as bad faith issues before such matters reach litigation in an effort to minimize our clients’ exposure to adverse consequences. The focus in these situations is to avoid claims before they arise. Members of the Coverage Group lecture extensively in the areas of insurance coverage and bad faith litigation.

In those cases which do involve litigation, we provide our clients with state of the art legal representation at all levels in state and federal courts. We provide a team approach which allows us to access the broad combined legal experience of the group which includes members who have litigated virtually every kind of coverage dispute our clients are likely to encounter.

We routinely handle claims which span the gamut of insurance litigation, including first and third party claims, general liability, auto liability/ PIP, professional liability and subrogation claims.
