Insurance

Due to the number of claims, new policy forms, and ever-increasing regulations, the legal issues facing the insurance industry are more complex than ever before. In order to navigate often murky legal waters, LGC’s attorneys provide our clients with assistance with coverage evaluations, representation in litigation, and counseling on regulatory and compliance issues.

Coverage Analysis

LGC’s attorneys have experience providing coverage opinions regarding first-party and third-party claims under a broad spectrum of policies, including general liability, professional liability, excess, claims made, automobile, health, long-term care, garage operations, private lines, advertising/media, OCIP, property, homeowner, crop, directors and officers, life, disability, and many other specialty lines. We provide advice and recommendations to clients both before and after claims decisions are made, and also provide counseling to insurance clients on risk management issues.

Litigation

LGC’s trial attorneys routinely represent insurers in bad faith litigation and related claims. Through decades of experience handling such cases, our attorneys are aware of the pitfalls of handling these claims, as well as critical defenses to help minimize or even eliminate liability of our clients. By accurately evaluating bad faith claims at the outset, we are able to advise our clients of the risks and strategies to cost-effectively resolve bad faith claims. In addition, LGC’s attorneys have significant experience representing clients in subrogation, contribution, and similar actions.
