Property and Casualty Insurance

We represent property and casualty insurers in just about every line of business, including defense of service contracts and home warranties, real property title disputes, automobile accidents, arson, and hurricane cases. For example, after Hurricane Katrina, we represented several different insurers involving hundreds of claims in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. In addition, we represent insurers in single claim and complex cases involving sales practices, bad faith, commercial paper, claims against guaranty associations, consumer claims, claims by agents, retrospective rating agreements, and other commercial and contract disputes related to the insurance industry.

Insurance Coverage Issues

We handle coverage issues for both businesses and their insurers in virtually any context, including property and casualty, employment practices, errors and omissions, and other business-related coverages. Successfully invoking coverages on behalf of our insured clients, we have developed a highly sophisticated practice in this increasingly complex area of the law.

We are guided by the principal goal of providing the highest level of legal representation and counseling to our insurance clients in the most efficient manner possible. Each of our cases is carefully managed and supervised to ensure that litigation costs are minimized.
