Insurance Coverage Litigation

Quarles & Brady’s Insurance Recovery Team is a nationally recognized group of highly specialized lawyers who represent policyholders and insureds throughout the country in a full range of insurance issues, across a broad spectrum of industries, including manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, financial services, industrial, agricultural, construction, and real estate. We successfully represent clients in pre-suit disputes, as well as litigation at all phases, from trial through appeal. We also analyze coverage and provide advice outside of the litigation context, including the tendering of claims, negotiating with insurers in their handling of claims, monitoring policies and coverage, and assisting clients with policy renewals, coverage analysis, and coverage audits. Our Insurance Recovery Team is deeply committed to ensuring that its business clients have the strategic foresight, guidance, and advocacy necessary to manage risk. We pride ourselves on providing cost-effective, practical solutions to clients in all manner of proceedings as skilled advocates guiding our clients to reach their business goals.

An Experienced Team

The members of our insurance recovery practice collectively have decades of experience representing policyholders and insureds with respect to insurance coverage issues, including litigation, mediation, and arbitration of coverage disputes; claims analysis and claims handling agreements for complex litigation and alleged mass torts; policy review and negotiation; captive insurance issues; insurer insolvency issues; advice to boards of directors on insurance and corporate governance issues; and risk management. We also advise our clients on insurance issues related to mergers and acquisitions and commercial contracts, as well as coordinating insurance programs and overseeing policyholder/insurer relationships pursuant to complex commercial agreements. Our team has recovered billions of dollars in insurance proceeds over the last 20 years.

Our attorneys represent policyholders and insureds in insurance coverage litigation, arbitration, and mediation. We have obtained highly successful results in numerous state and federal courts throughout the country, at both the trial and appellate levels. We bring a pragmatic, cost-effective approach to these matters, coupled with significant litigation experience in the underlying claims for which coverage is being sought. From achieving claims-handling agreements, to addressing complex multidistrict litigation and declaratory judgments, to managing bad faith claims against recalcitrant liability insurers, we understand how to translate our clients’ valuable rights under contracts of insurance into effective legal remedies.
