As a prominent figure in the global insurance and reinsurance market, Clark Hill represents United States, London, European, and Bermuda insurers and reinsurers in coverage disputes, arbitrations, insolvency and regulatory actions, and transactional matters. Our practice combines the talents of veteran insurance counsellors, accomplished coverage attorneys, formidable trial advocates, and seasoned appellate advisors who are known throughout the insurance reinsurance market.
Our team is valued for extensive industry know-how and the ability to efficiently handle any complex matter in connection with (re)insurance--from representing a Bermuda reinsurer in arbitration with its cedent regarding an underlying settlement allocation, and appellate advocacy on behalf of excess layer insurers challenging coverage of a class action settlement, to providing an opinion on the status of credit insurance under state law. Importantly we are experienced in guiding managing general agents, producers, agents, and brokers through the array of legal challenges they face.
Our team delivers counseling abilities to clients as as Lloyd's and other London market insurers, with respect to pre-underwriting and claims audits, management of high exposure claims, and providing coverage advice. We help clients evaluate risk, determine premiums, and draft policies regarding a wide variety of lines of business, including miscellaneous errors and omissions, workers compensation, billing E&O, hospitals, allied health risks, correctional health risks and physicians, and hospital management liability.
Moreover, our firm assists with the management of high-exposure claims that extend from a nationwide network of defense counsel and other experts through litigation, trial, and appeal. We routinely work with clients' insureds and their counsel on developing and implementing focused and tactical defenses. Whether through early settlement negotiation or developing litigation strategies, our attorneys have maintained a reputation of dealing constructively and efficiently with clients.
