We serve as regional and national counsel for major national and international carriers and offer expert advice and representation in many areas of coverage law, ranging from property insurance and inland marine/ocean marine insurance to all varieties of liability insurance, including commercial and personal lines policies, environmental liability insurance, professional liability, and motor vehicle liability including uninsured and underinsured motorist issues. We have handled cases involving liability exposures and property claims in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Our attorneys also participate in professional conferences and provide seminars and educational materials for our clients to inform them of new developments and emerging issues in insurance coverage.
