Coverage and Insurance Litigation

The attorneys in C&T's Coverage Insurance Litigation Section have been engaged in the representation of insurance and risk management interests for many years. We have served as counsel to numerous property and casualty insurance companies, professional liability underwriters, life insurance companies, and reinsurance companies.

Our attorneys have the experience to provide opinions on all lines of insurance and all types of policies. But what sets us apart is that our insurance coverage attorneys are trial lawyers, with actual courtroom experience litigating complex coverage, bad faith and other related issues. These attorneys analyze complicated insurance coverage matters and stand ready to defend the positions recommended to our clients.

Our coverage attorneys are experienced in analyzing most types of coverage, including

  • General liability
  • Commercial and personal auto
  • UM and UIM
  • Homeowners’
  • Surety
  • Commercial property policies
  • Excess and umbrella policies
  • Construction wrap-up policies (OCIP)
  • Environmental and toxic tort issues
  • Reinsurance
  • Professional liability
  • D & O
  • Workers’ compensation/employers liability and employer indemnity

Our services include assistance to SIU units of insurer clients, fraud investigation, examinations under oath, and defending cases that may arise out of such activities.

Our background in insurance matters enhances our ability to effectively address the insurance needs of our non-insurance clients. We have an in-depth understanding of underwriting and policy coverage issues affecting the business and legal issues of our non-insurance clients.
