General Liability Insurance Defense

Our heritage is insurance defense, and among our partners, we have over 100 years of experience in representing commercial entities and individuals involved in all types of general liability litigation, working closely with property and casualty and personal line insurance carriers to achieve well-considered and cost-effective outcomes.

Professional Liability Defense

We represent all types of licensed professionals, including health care providers, architects, accountants, engineers, real estate brokers, insurance agents and securities brokers and dealers. We understand the importance of retaining the right experts for the job, preparing our clients for deposition, trial or NASD arbitration, and accurately assessing liability exposure and damages.

Construction Litigation

The Litigation team coordinates, manages, and tries these frequently complex cases, which require not only a strong grasp of design, construction and the law, but also a sensitivity to the relationships between and among commercial and residential real estate developers, general contractors, and subcontractors in cases dealing with construction defects, breach of contract and breach of warranty.

Class Action Litigation

Whether in the context of a construction defect or products liability case, we understand and enjoy the challenge of these cases. We have been successful in challenging class certification, in working with national counsel, and in coordinating defenses and coverages.

We defend a variety of commercial entities in cases dealing with large personal injury and property damage claims.

Products Liability Defense

Bad Faith and Insurance Coverage

Whether in the context of a declaratory judgment action, a third-party bad faith claim or a tender of defense analysis, these cases require a thoughtful and strategic approach. We provide the leadership needed to address the interplay of insurance contract analysis, the facts and the ever-changing law in this area.

Social Services Defense

We represent and defend agencies and individuals that provide Social Services. We understand the social service system and the flow of information within that system. This understanding allows us to provide a focused and thorough representation.

Appellate Advocacy

We are experienced in analyzing the record and the law in providing effective and strategic appellate representation, whether it is for a case we have taken to trial or cases tried by other counsel.
