We have represented both individuals and corporations as plaintiffs, and leading insurance companies as defendants, in lawsuits involving insurance recovery and bad faith.
When insurance companies wrongfully deny their policyholders a legitimate claim either for indemnity, damages or to provide a defense to a lawsuit, the policyholder may have a claim against the insurance company for acting in bad faith. Bad faith claims can result in damages much greater than the policyholder’s actual loss and should be handled by experienced counsel who are respected by insurance companies and are not afraid of trial.
We have also represented international insurance companies that have been sued for denying illegitimate claims made by policyholders. When an insurance company has been falsely accused of acting in bad faith, we aggressively defend it all the way through trial.
Handling bad faith cases both for plaintiffs and defendants has given us unique insights into the inner workings of the parties and their counsel, and how the courts view these cases. Very few law firms can make that claim, as most are “pure plaintiff” or “pure defense” firms. For us, what matters is that a case is meritorious, not who the party is.
