INSURANCE DEFENSE LITIGATION

With comprehensive understanding of the law and an innovative approach as its cornerstones, our insurance defense litigation practice area partners with insurance companies, private corporations, and municipalities.  Our litigation team begins every case with the development of a strategic plan, including potential liability and damages issues, preliminary assessment of value, and the plan for defense. 

For the most efficient results, we also complete an initial assessment to determine potential for early resolution, whether by settlement or dispositive motion.
