We handle sophisticated insurance coverage matters from cradle to grave. We investigate claims, draft and issue coverage opinions, prosecute, defend and try declaratory judgment actions, and handle arbitration and alternate dispute resolutions.

Our lawyers deal with a breadth of coverage issues, including third-party tenders of defense, additional insured status, late notice, trigger of occurrence, pollution exclusions, claims-made wordings, completed operations, errors and omission claims, guaranty fund claims, insolvency and liquidation matters, allocation issues, and premium funding.

We represented the County of Cook, Illinois in the insurance settlement of various wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits arising out of the 2003 fire at the Cook County Administration Building.
We represent certain Lloyd’s and London insurers, as the tortfeasor’s assignees, in declaratory proceedings in New Orleans state court against certain Bermuda-based policies exceeding USD 20 million.
