Because insurance and reinsurance disputes can involve complex and high-stakes legal issues, policyholders need experienced counsel who can offer creative strategies, prudent advice, and sophisticated advocacy—particularly when sufficient insurance recovery may mean the difference between shuttering your business and continuing to operate. Epstein Becker Green fulfills those needs.

Attorneys in Epstein Becker Green’s Insurance Coverage and Reinsurance Disputes Group are experienced in litigation disputes involving insurers and reinsurers. We provide advice, negotiate, and litigate a wide variety of first- and third-party insurance coverage and claims disputes, reinsurance issues, and insurance insolvency matters. In our commercial and contract litigation practice, we have represented both plaintiffs and defendants. This experience has given us the ability to both accurately assess the benefits of pursuing a particular coverage litigation and anticipate insurance and reinsurance companies’ defense strategies.

We know the playbook, and our litigation know-how is enhanced by our experience in insurance and reinsurance transactions, as well as regulatory matters. We also call to bear our extensive relationships with forensic accountants and other consultants to quantify losses and prepare proofs of loss. In the event that a dispute cannot be resolved through direct negotiations or alternative dispute resolution, we leverage our extensive trial experience to secure the best results for our clients.  

Matters We Handle

The Insurance Coverage and Reinsurance Disputes Group handles a variety of matters:

  • Disputes involving business interruption, cyber, commercial general liability, environmental, fidelity, D&O, E&O, professional liability, property and casualty, and specialty coverage, as well as ERISA and non-ERISA health, disability and life coverage
  • Bad faith claims
  • Reinsurance disputes
  • Surety bond issues
  • Fraudulent policies
  • Safe-deposit box losses
  • Professional malpractice claims against insurance brokers
  • Claims arising from insurance insolvency

For example, Epstein Becker Green attorneys defended an insurance carrier in a rare bad faith coverage trial in New Jersey Superior Court. We secured a favorable resolution on behalf of our client after the plaintiff rested its case three weeks into the trial.
