Tedford & Pond provides legal representation in five major practice areas:
· Fire Science Litigation
· Insurance Coverage
· General Liability Insurance Defense
· Product Liability, and
These areas are interrelated and often our clients' needs do not fall along any single line of practice. Our attorneys work collaboratively across practice areas to bring into play their collective knowledge and experience, and to ensure seamless and effective representation.
Our national reach allows us to serve our insurance and product manufacturing clients throughout the United States. Whether the client requires coast-to-coast litigation management, discovery compilation, or multi-jurisdiction trial attorneys, our extensive experience in national litigation is an asset to our clients.
We are a recognized leader in litigating cases involving complex fire science and product liability issues. We represent a broad range of clients from insurers to product manufacturers when their legal concerns -- whether insurance coverage, product defense, or subrogation -- involve fire.
We set ourselves apart from other firms because of our extensive experience in fire litigation. We litigate fire cases by striving to ensure that a fire's origin and cause are correctly identified at the fire scene before litigation ensues. During litigation, we apply fire science principles to secure the best possible results for our clients.
Our practice also extends to the representation of insurance companies and insureds in coverage disputes. We are well-versed in analyzing policy language and applicable law that spans multiple lines of insurance and multiple casualty-property exposures at both primary and excess levels of coverage. We encourage consultation at the first indication of a coverage question, whether upon the reporting of a new claim, or well into the investigative process. We are fully prepared to represent our clients as plaintiffs or defendants in declaratory judgment actions, working toward an expedient and favorable resolution of coverage issues.
