Resolve Insurance Policy Disputes Promptly


There are many advantages for our clients in resolving insurance disputes as early as possible, and most claims are resolved through mediation or other forms of negotiation, arbitration, or streamlined declaratory relief actions. Our firm has the skill and knowledge to conclude insurance matters as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The attorneys assigned to our coverage department have almost 60 years of combined experience in handling insurance matters. They have worked for decades both in private practice and as general counsel for a major carrier, and they have represented carriers in some of California’s landmark insurance cases. We look forward to putting that experience to work for you.

We also prepare coverage opinions about a broad range of insurance policies and the bad faith implications of insurance carrier activities. We have extensive experience with policies offering insurance for:

  • Comprehensive general liability
  • Owner-controlled insurance programs (wrap-up) and other construction exposure
  • Property losses
  • Director and officers liability
  • Life, health and disability
  • Professional liability
  • Homeowners

representing insurance carriers in insurance fraud and bad faith claims


We represent our carrier clients against bad faith claims, in declaratory relief actions aimed at determining whether coverage applies to a given loss, in subrogation actions, and in inter-carrier contribution and indemnity litigation.
