Insurance Coverage

Insurance related issues and disputes present recurring concerns to insurers, brokers and agents, claim-handling specialists and policy holders. Questions concerning the existence, scope and amount of coverage often involve intricate issues of policy interpretation and an expansive body of specialized insurance law and practice. And, not infrequently, insurance coverage issues lead to litigation or other dispute resolution proceedings, including the assertion and resolution of “bad faith” and extracontractual liability claims.  Our Insurance Coverage lawyers have decades of experience advising and representing clients in connection with matters involving rights and obligations under liability policies, and “first party” coverages, as well as a broad array of other insurance products and issues. Those matters include:

  • Coverage for asbestos-related injury, pollution and other “long-tail” liability claims
  • Directors’ and officers’ liability coverage
  • Agency and brokerage disputes
  • Business interruption claims and losses
  • Life, health and disability coverage issues
  • Insurance “bad faith” and extracontractual liability
  • Retroactive premium rating
  • Insurance regulatory proceedings
  • Risk management issues
  • Reinsurance issues
  • Professional errors and omissions coverages
