Our Approach

​Resolution of complex insurance and reinsurance issues, and resulting disputes, are challenging. A successful outcome demands lawyers who understand the business of insurance, have mastered insurance law, and know how to communicate detailed and complicated insurance issues to a judge, jury, or arbitration panel.

We have spent decades mastering the full range of insurance and reinsurance products, programs, and businesses. We partner with our clients to identify, at the outset, their business goals and then collaborate with them to design strategies that will address their goals quickly and efficiently. Where early resolution is not viable, we work together with our clients to implement winning legal strategies, recognizing that a single insurance dispute could have industry-wide ramifications. Our team is committed to meeting our clients’ business goals and performing at a level that exceeds their expectations.
