Your company’s insurance policies are assets. Blank Rome’s premier insurance recovery practice has one overarching objective: to maximize your bottom line. Our practice exclusively represents policyholders, taking a creative and business-minded approach to insurance coverage. Our focus on policyholders makes us conflict-free, and we can be adverse to any insurer. We find coverage where others do not.
We do not just practice insurance law. We help shape it and influence it with inventive litigation, mediation, arbitration, and settlement strategies that win recoveries and set precedents. These have led to landmark rulings and to major advances for our clients. We are widely credited with developing a number of novel legal theories that are now recognized and accepted by the courts and industry commentators.
With decades of proven success in recovering billions on innovative theories for Fortune 50 companies, private businesses and entrepreneurs facing bet-the-company losses, and the most prominent consulting firms and law firms, our clients turn to us for our analysis, experience, reputation, and record of success.
How We Can Help
We offer comprehensive services to policyholders throughout the United States and abroad. Our attorneys represent clients in a wide range of matters that include policy audits, litigation for coverage recoveries, and complex resolution options that include strategic settlements.
We do more than litigation, and frequently have a seat at the deal table as insurance counsel for multibillion dollar corporate mergers and acquisitions. Our attorneys have significant experience analyzing target companies’ insurance programs and risk profiles, drafting insurance and indemnity provisions in deal documents, and advising on and negotiating the terms of representations and warranty insurance and tax insurance policies.
There is virtually no type of policy, loss, or claim that we have not dealt with on behalf of clients. Our list of key successes illustrates the breadth of our practice across industries and insurance lines. Our insurance recovery attorneys are also often called upon to publish articles or provide commentary in leading insurance and legal publications, and routinely author articles in Policyholder Informer, the Firm’s insurance recovery blog.
