Our Insurance: Regulatory & Transactional Practice Group focuses on the representation of clients engaged in all lines of insurance ranging from publicly-traded, international insurers to family-owned insurance agencies, including traditional insurance business clients such as insurers, producers, premium finance companies, third-party administrators, managing general agencies, captives and other alternative risk transfer entities, state insurance guaranty funds and state insurance departments. We also represent other business entities in connection with their subsidiary insurance operations, including commercial banks, investment banks, leasing companies and retailers, and insurance-linked securities, securitizations and other structured finance transactions.
Our Insurance: Litigation & Counseling team represents insurers in high-stakes and contentious litigation around the country, often involving very significant alleged exposure to our clients, sophisticated legal issues, considerable factual and expert discovery, multi-party dynamics, multiple lines of current and historic coverages, and complex jurisdictional battles. We also are selected by insurers to defend insureds in certain tort litigation. We are creative in our litigation strategy and work to see each matter to conclusion, whether through mediation or settlement, by summary judgment motions, to a bench or jury trial, or on appeal, by summary judgment motions, or through mediation or settlement.
Our Reinsurance group is a premier provider of corporate, regulatory, arbitration, run-off and litigation services to the reinsurance industry.
