Overview of Services

Our firm has handled thousands of claims against insurance companies, helping clients recover money for losses suffered, for the legal costs of defending themselves in litigation, and for settling claims or satisfying judgments. We know how to quickly evaluate a claim, gauging its dynamics and understanding each client’s pressure points in determining whether to negotiate or litigate. 

We know how insurance companies operate and how to devise the best strategy for recovering funds without incurring excess costs or engaging in unnecessary conflicts. We often resolve a coverage dispute without litigation, but have the experience and resources to litigate efficiently if necessary. Working closely with our firm’s Business, Construction, Environment, Real Estate, and other sections, the Insurance Recovery group obtains results while staying mindful of the impact of litigation on companies and their executives.

We staff each case with a partner who has experience with the applicable industry and knows the types of policies involved. This has been instrumental in our recovering millions of dollars for clients in courts and arbitration proceedings throughout California and the United States.
