The property interests of a business or individual are among their most valuable, and yet, those interests are constantly at risk from various hazards, including weather, accidents, and mischief. When such a loss occurs, policyholders turn quickly to their first-party property policy to respond. Our lawyers are called upon by our insurer clients to assume various roles in such first-party claims – from spearheading a claim investigation to defending the insurer’s coverage position in litigation and on appeal – and everything in between. At each step, our lawyers carefully examine the facts of the loss, the language of the policy, and the applicable law to work through the contested issues of coverage and the scope and value of the loss.
The property insurance industry is shaped by a unique set of factors. Our team provides clients with the sophisticated counsel they need to navigate the most challenging claims and legal issues faced by first-party property insurers. We advise property insurers and markets on claims handling, coverage and related litigation under a wide range of manuscript and standard property forms.
