Strong Advocates for Policyholders

Our insurance team helps corporate policyholders get the most out of their insurance coverage. We work with clients throughout the world in developing creative litigation, mediation, arbitration and settlement strategies on a range of matters, including commercial property and business interruption, cyber, directors’ and officers’, E&O, intellectual property and other types of commercial coverage. Our team has a proven track record of successfully negotiating with and litigating against major insurers in the United States and abroad.

We are strong advocates for our clients, always mindful of commercial concerns that may influence how we approach a given matter. With a deep understanding of the insurance business and the needs of our clients, we are recognized as a go‐to coverage firm by leading international insurance brokers and consultants, who frequently refer their clients to us when coverage issues arise.

Our lawyers have helped clients recover by obtaining policy proceeds from major disasters, such as:

  • the COVID-19 pandemic
  • the 9/11 terrorists attacks
  • accounting scandals
  • virtually every hurricane and named storm in the US and Caribbean over the last 20 years
  • other natural disasters, such as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the 2021 winter storm in Texas
  • the Deepwater Horizon oil spill
  • major wildfires in California and Texas
  • business-threatening cyberattacks
