Coverage Assessment and Advice
Our insurance litigation attorneys are called upon frequently to provide coverage advice to insurers on whether or not their policy covers particular circumstances. We help insurance carriers untangle the often complex web of policy exceptions and exclusions and advise on whether to compensate the policyholder or defend against the claim. We deliver comprehensive assessments and advice in all matters related to insurance coverage. We provide opinions on a wide range of issues, including policy interpretation (e.g. language and exclusions), risk management, claims analysis, triggers of coverage, multiple layers of coverage, duty to defend and indemnity obligations. We defend clients in cases involving reservation of rights, denial of claims, declaratory judgment actions, and other legal matters related to insurance defense.
