We have defended and prosecuted countless litigated matters and have extensive experience in all aspects of litigation up to and including trials and appeals. Our courtroom work includes both jury and bench trials. We have participated in numerous private trials, some lasting over the course of many months.
The partners have litigated numerous declaratory relief matters in both State and Federal Courts. The issues litigated include questions of the duty to defend and indemnify, disputes among and between carriers and the defense of counterclaims for bad faith. The policies included first and third party coverages, issued at both the primary and excess levels.
We have also litigated dozens of extra-contractual cases for a major national carrier, many of which included claims of fraud by the policyholder.
While we know every phase of litigation, we also know that the majority of cases settle. We have participated in hundreds of mediations, settlement conferences and negotiations.
