Insurance & Reinsurance - Dispute Resolution and Counseling

Willkie’s insurance team provides comprehensive counsel on a full range of insurance and reinsurance coverage disputes.  Unique among law firms, we represent clients in all three segments of insurance coverage disputes – policyholders, insurance brokers and insurance companies.  We are proud that clients in all three corners of the coverage triangle call on us to solve their most difficult problems.

Our knowledge of all three segments gives us a deep understanding of the thinking and motivations of all of the participants in a coverage dispute.  This, in turn, provides our clients with insight not normally available from other law firms who typically represent one side only. Clients value our unique perspective and the creativity we bring to resolving disputes whether through negotiation, litigation or arbitration.  And, because the parties to insurance coverage disputes know we are not aligned with only one category of clients, they are more willing to work with us to reach prompt and fair resolutions.

Our insurance practice has been recognized by Chambers USA—America’s Leading Lawyers for Business for our “consistently high-quality service and outstanding work product.” Chambers also notes that “the combination of expertise and business judgment this team possesses is quite rare—lawyers here are highly professional and effective.”
