In this practice area, we specialize in the defense of matters which involve complex issues of law concerning policy interpretation. The cases are often matters of first impression in which we are called upon to litigate the coverage determination itself and ancillary theories of extra-contractual recovery. The cases often represent a large monetary exposure to the client but they also carry with them technical issues which may affect insurance policy drafting, terminology and usage in future cases.
We often prevail in these matters on motions for summary judgment. If the cases proceed to trial, we have the experience to marshall the evidence and persuade both the courts and the juries.
