Our attorneys have conducted numerous insurance audits for commercial and individual clients. Our clients have found that advice provided by attorneys well-versed in litigation and insurance issues, but who are not trying to sell insurance products, is uniquely valuable in structuring their own insurance coverage and making purchasing decisions. We thoughtfully assist clients in preparing insurance claims and drafting claim documents in order to maximize claims recoveries, sometimes through the filing of suit or an administrative complaint, or both.
