Insurance issues can escalate from simple to complex quickly, and you need attorneys able to handle it all. With Wallace Saunders, you can rest assured the attorneys in our Insurance Practice Group have a command of insurance law and litigation. In fact, the firm was founded more than 50 years ago with insurance at the core of our practice.
Our attorneys are adept at handling issues of insurance coverage, claims handling, and litigation under a wide variety of standard form and manuscript policies, including:
- Business and commercial auto
- Commercial property
- Common carrier
- Directors and officers liability
- Fidelity and surety
- General liability
- Personal lines
- Professional liability
- Property and casualty
- Surplus lines and reinsurance
Additionally, we provide coverage analyses and opinions, evaluate policyholder liability, advocate the position of our insurer clients in settlement negotiations in underlying litigation, monitor litigation on behalf of excess carriers, provide advice with underwriting matters, and protect insurers’ interests in underlying litigation.
We regularly represent clients in the defense of insurance coverage and bad faith suits seeking contractual and extra-contractual damages, as well as complex, multiparty insurance litigation like environmental contamination, product liability, mass tort and construction defects.
We also prosecute and defend declaratory judgment actions, pursue contribution actions against co-insurers, pursue additional insured rights under other carriers’ policies for contribution, pursue indemnity rights under contractual indemnity provisions, and represent insurers through the appellate process.
Few industries are as complex and regulated as insurance. With Wallace Saunders at your side, your company has the assurance it needs to move forward with protection.
