Mass Torts Claims and Litigation

Class action litigation is on the rise, and disputes involving insurance coverage are no exception to this trend. When significant and high-stakes insurance coverage litigation arises, insurers need lawyers that are as skilled at hard-fought litigation as they are at negotiating confidential resolutions.

We have represented insurance clients in numerous complex coverage disputes arising out of some of the nation’s highest-profile mass tort claims. Where appropriate, we seamlessly involve experienced counsel from a number of the firm’s core areas, including product liability, corporate, financial restructuring and insolvency and intellectual property, to provide a full analysis of the insured’s potential exposure as well as the underlying insurance coverage issues. Our lawyers have particular experience dealing with insolvent or defunct insureds, corporate succession issues, environmental claims, and healthcare matters.
