McCarthy Lebit’s Insurance Defense group represents insurance companies in matters arising from third party claims against policies. We also help both major nationwide carriers and regional insurers resolve disputes involving policyholders. Our lawyers provide services that include written opinions, claim negotiations, arbitration and litigation. We serve as general counsel to several insurance companies, as well as consultants on specific matters. Our attorneys understand that every insurance case is different, and we work with you to understand the nature of the claim and create an individualized strategy to get your case resolved.
Our Insurance Defense practice involves disputes such as title insurance claims, product liability, construction surety, legal and medical malpractice, commercial general liability, casualty and property, and automotive. In matters such as these, we represent carriers in bad faith insurance litigation over denied claims, cancelled policies or refusal to defend. We undertake complex and multi-district litigation in state and federal courts and also provide advice on small-scale claims matters.
The attorneys in this group are highly knowledgeable about developments in the field of insurance law and frequently lecture on the topic. Our Insurance Coverage team has also been involved in landmark cases that have influenced coverage obligations.
