Insurance Defense

We serve as defense counsel to major national and international insurance companies doing business in New Jersey and New York. We offer our clients skilled, aggressive, responsive and efficient legal services in all areas of insurance law.

In addition to general casualty work, we are recognized as a leader in the specialty practice of insurance fraud. We use innovative techniques, advanced technology and hard work to fight insurance fraud. Our firm pioneered the use of large declaratory judgment actions to combat large fraud schemes involving multiple claims including actions against fraudulent medical providers and participants in staged automobile accident rings. We have utilized intervention motions to protect insurance companies against collusive lawsuits. We have helped carriers use the provisions in their own policies as effective weapons to defeat fraudulent claims.

We provide timely and succinct coverage opinions to primary and excess insurance companies. Our coverage work includes duty to defend analysis, bad faith claims, contractual coverage, policy conditions, fiduciary responsibility, first party coverage litigation, business interruption coverage and mass plaintiff and toxic tort cases.

We have extensive experience litigating insurance claims in all courts. Our firm includes certified civil trial attorneys.
