Sperduto Thompsonís attorneys have decades of experience in insurance-related litigation and counseling, ranging across a broad range of roles and lines of coverage.
The firm maintains an active, nationwide coverage litigation and counseling practice on behalf of selected insurance carriers. The firmís attorneys have successfully litigated complex disputes in a wide array of coverage lines, including directors and officers, professional liability, public entity, and general liability policies, among others, and have experience as well in reinsurance and reinsurance arbitration. The firm also has significant expertise in the litigation and resolution of so-called ďbad faithĒ claims, in which disputes over an insurerís handling of settlement issues or other aspects of claim-handling can lead to factually and legally complex litigation issues and demands for extra-contractual relief.
The firmís attorneys also provide counseling and advocacy on behalf of business and individual clients who need assistance dealing with insurance-related issues of one sort or another. The firmís business clients include, for example, prominent commercial and residential real estate developers, whose development, construction, and investment activities inevitably involve complex, multi-faceted insurance programs that address a wide variety of potential risks. The firmís attorneys add value to such clientsí activities in a variety of ways, including working with executives, risk managers, and brokers to secure policy benefits when major claims arise as well as providing drafting and review services in connection with insurance-related documents and contractual provisions, including manuscript policies and endorsements, OCIP manuals, releases, and broker service agreements.
