Managing liability risk exposure is difficult, especially when faced with complex claims or pleadings riddled with legal tort theories arising from catastrophic accidents or wrongful acts of technical specialists, professionals or officers and directors. Towers of liability insurance and multiple policy periods often have to deal, nearly immediately, with dangerous time limited demands. To meet these coverage obligations, we provide prompt and cogent analysis of the relevant coverage and liability issues, taking into account the governing law of multiple states when necessary in order to provide comprehensive coverage opinions, critical reservation of rights, and reliable guidance on when to deny coverage, file Declaratory Judgment actions, seek rescission or reformation, enforce “other insurance” allocation and negotiate to resolution liability claims.
