Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith

The interpretation of coverage obligations is one of the most critical steps in the claim process. There is no firm in New Jersey with greater expertise or knowledge of insurance coverage law; we have been involved in some of the most significant rulings on coverage and bad faith in the state. We routinely advise carriers on the nature and extent of their obligations – with respect to both defense and indemnity – and provide sound advice which will stand up in court. We assist in the drafting of coverage position correspondence such as reservations of rights and disclaimers. The firm frequently files declaratory judgment actions on behalf of carriers seeking adjudication of their rights and liabilities, deploying pleadings designed to expedite disposition of claims at a fraction of the time and expense involved in full-fledged DJ actions.
