Since its founding in 1976, BOEHM BROWN HARWOOD, P.A. has represented a wide range of institutional and corporate clients in the highly specialized field of insurance coverage issues. Our firm also continues to represent commercial and individual insureds in the defense of lawsuits brought against them. Our commitment to service and excellence is reflected by the professionalism of the partners, our record of success in the insurance and defense arenas, including the highest ratings by Martindale Hubbell Law Directory and recognition by peers through invitations to speak and publish at a variety of insurance industry conferences.
For many years, BOEHM BROWN HARWOOD, P.A. has enjoyed the reputation of being a leader in the field of first party insurance coverage issues. Our firm's attorneys actively participate in numerous national and local organizations devoted to both property insurance and other first party coverage disputes. Serving as officers, faculty and authors for publications by entities such as the Windstorm Insurance Network, Inc., the Property Insurance Law Committee of the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section of the American Bar Association, the Florida Advisory Committee on Arson Prevention, the International Association of Arson Investigators, the Loss Executives Association, the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel and the Defense Research Institute, our attorneys remain on the cutting edge of insurance coverage issues.
As the 21st century progresses, our firm has chosen to strongly emphasize our experience with first and third party insurance coverage issues. By concentrating our efforts in these areas, the firm's knowledge of coverage issues helps us to serve our clients in a cost-effective manner by reducing the duplication of research, as well as repetitive investigations and consultations. This knowledge also allows our firm to concentrate on solutions with intensity and utilize each attorney's strong work ethic and knowledge in his or her chosen areas of practice.
BOEHM BROWN HARWOOD, P.A. also recognizes that the highest quality, most cost-effective legal representation is achieved through the preparation of accurate and reliable strategic plans and litigation budgets. While our firm is vigorous in the defense of lawsuits, we recognize that early resolution of claims can be beneficial to our clients. We therefore strive to use our extensive resources to avoid (or bring an efficient conclusion to) costly litigation through mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods.
