The Firm’s Professional Liability practice maintains a strong emphasis on representing Insurance agents, brokers and the like. Our Firm’s vast knowledge of the insurance industry results in effective analysis of the agency relationships between and among the parties and an aggressive defense plan targeted at quick dismissals wherever possible. We have defended against a broad array of claims and obtained successful dismissals through trials, voluntary dismissals, summary judgments and other dispositive motions, arbitrations and appeals.
Our experience includes claims asserted against brokers for losses arising from natural catastrophes such as fires, earthquakes, floods and hurricanes, as well as man-made catastrophic losses that have affected credit markets, real estate values and every aspect of insurable risks. We draw on the resources and experience of the entire firm in responding to the complete spectrum of coverage issues, including property, casualty, life and all forms of third-party liability policies. Our track record is impeccable and our clients’ satisfaction with the results is apparent from their loyalty and the growth that we enjoy in this area of our practice.
We also serve as local counsel for broker clients, and in that role we select experienced and competent local representatives, coordinate defense activities, share our wealth of knowledge and experience, and manage nationwide defense and claims’ resolution to ensure a consistently high-quality defense. Our Firm’s experience in representing agents and brokers in liability matters has resulted in the acquisition of an extensive network of expert consultants we can access for advice, consultation or expert witness services.
