Nevers Palazzo has substantial depth in representing both insurance companies and policy-holders in evaluating the parties’ obligations for many types of claims, under numerous lines of insurance.
Counsel to Insurance Carriers
Our counsel to insurers includes serving national insurance carriers as local or coordinating counsel to supervise other outside counsel located in states nationwide. We prosecute and defend declaratory relief actions and extra-contractual cases in state and federal court through trial or arbitration, and on appeal. Insurance coverage dispute counsel areas include:
- Litigation of claims
- Mass tort and catastrophic losses
- Extra contractual claims
- Disputes between insurers
- Environmental contamination litigation
The scope of our experience with insurance lines spans from general, professional, directors and officers and products liability to business interruption, property, title, specialty, industry specific, environmental, mass torts, health, and disability.
Policy-holder Insurance Advisory
Forward-looking companies use high-quality insurance to build business resiliency in an increasingly complex and connected marketplace. We advise policy-holders, their brokers, and their other trusted advisors on the acquisition and renewal of all lines of insurance. Additionally, our advisory services include:
- Acquisition and renewal of insurance
- Insurance issues resulting from mergers and acquisitions
- Evaluation of historic insurance lines and the impact of corporate succession
- Coordination of claim tender for defense and indemnity
Never Palazzo attorneys are dogged in upholding clients’ policy rights. Should our clients’ claims be denied, we carefully assess the scope of coverage and the contractual “exclusions,” then aggressively seek out the carrier’s decision-makers to secure a positive outcome for clients.
Nevers Palazzo’s business attorneys take a proactive approach to attacking issues. They often act as business advisors, something unique for attorneys, which is why my clients and I enjoy working with them.
