Bad Faith & Insurance Coverage
Our devoted Bad Faith team has established expertise in extra-contractual litigation and coverage issues. Clients rely on us to provide coverage analysis and guidance on a wide variety of issues: duty to defend, reservation of rights, right to counsel, UM/UIM stacking and form issues, consent to settle, late notice, standing, conflicts, statute of limitations, cancellation, and policy interpretations. In addition to coverage opinions, we have successfully tried cases involving coverage defenses and have sought declaratory relief from the courts.
Our knowledge of the claims handling and evaluation process, combined with our expertise in defending extra-contractual lawsuits in both state and federal jurisdictions, enables us to provide counsel on practices that will help insurers prevent bad faith claims and unnecessary problems before they arise.
