Wilcox Dunakin Chrisopoulos, LLP devotes a substantial part of our practice to insurance matters, including defending and/or representing insurance carriers and insureds as coverage counsel in all types of litigation, including complex liability coverage suits, routine coverage matters, subrogation suits, declaratory judgment litigation on the duty to defend, breach of contract and "bad faith" litigation, appeals and arbitration proceedings. Our coverage experience encompasses virtually every line of insurance coverage, including standard Insurance Services Organization (ISO) forms and unique manuscript provisions providing first-party or third-party coverage under commercial general liability, personal lines, homeowners, business operations, life, and professional liability lines of insurance.
Wilcox Dunakin Chrisopoulos, LLP also routinely advises clients on coverage issues outside of direct litigation, providing counsel regarding the duty to defend, reservations of rights, the duties owed by an insured or insurer to one another, and loss allocation issues. We monitor the defense of matters defended by other law firms, and advise on the general adjustment and handling of claims. In conjunction with our Insurance practice, we regularly advise our business and insurance clients on a variety of contractual loss allocation issues, including indemnity and hold harmless agreements, contractual limitations of liability, and agreements to procure insurance. Additionally, we counsel clients on the placement and terms of policies, drafting of policy language, and assist in the training of claims and risk management personnel.
If there is an insurance coverage question or matter confronting you, your company or your client, do not hesitate in contacting Wilcox Dunakin Chrisopoulos, LLP to provide the representation and answer.
