Insurance Coverage

PDF

Overview

Robinson Bradshaw provides skilled representation of policyholders exclusively for insurance coverage counseling and dispute resolution. We provide trusted counsel, frequently in collaboration with clients' risk managers and brokers, in identifying, negotiating and securing coverages, both in the ordinary course and relative to significant transactions. Our attorneys are leaders in recognizing emerging risks and related coverage issues, including those engendered by COVID-19. We represent insurance coverage clients including public and private enterprises across the business spectrum. 

When insurers deny promised coverage (as they often do), Robinson Bradshaw's coverage litigation team brings to bear its extensive experience litigating against virtually every major insurer to secure the coverage for our clients. We have successfully litigated coverage claims in state and federal courts across the country, including precedent-setting cases, and many for punitive and statutory treble damages. Robinson Bradshaw has extensive experience securing our clients' coverage rights relative to bet-the-company asbestos, environmental, and other toxic tort and mass product liability claims. 

Robinson Bradshaw has handled these matters under a variety of alternative fee arrangements, including full and partial contingency fee.

Our attorneys have obtained favorable rulings requiring:

  • Joint and several defense of long-tail toxic tort, asbestos and environmental claims
  • Immediate participation of excess insurers and consequent rejection of horizontal exhaustion theories
  • Elimination of claimed retrospective premiums
  • Substantial reduction of per-claim deductibles arising out of a single occurrence
  • Assumption by insurers of duties proved solely using secondary evidence
  • Elimination of defense and indemnity costs charges for gaps in toxic tort coverage
