Insurance Defense Litigation

When Liability Issues Surface, We Will Defend Your Company

The construction industry has many potential hazards. While many projects go off without a hitch, sometimes property damage, business disruptions or personal injuries happen.  Regardless of whether a liability claim is made before the project is completed or arises many years later, our team of experienced litigators will aggressively defend you from claims related to defective design, negligent performance, complex multi-party catastrophic occurrences, personal injury and death, structural collapse and systems failures.  With our extensive network of industry experts and consultants, we have the resources available to address a variety of these kind of liability issues when the stakes are high.  We deliver high quality legal service to the client-insured, all within the guidelines required by the insurance carrier.  Aggressive and effective defense of insured claims protects the insured, and the insurance carrier.
