Insurance

DeCotiis insurance attorneys combine innovative, strategic legal expertise with an emphasis on representation that is efficient, cost-effective and above all, responsive. We know that in cases involving the defense of an insured in a matter arising out of an accident or covered occurrence, it is critical that the carrier be kept up to date on the status of a case promptly, accurately and thoroughly. Regular, comprehensive reporting and communication is one of our highest priorities.

Our attorneys have represented numerous insurance companies and their insureds in both state and Federal courts at both the the trial and appellate levels. As a full-service firm, attorneys in the group draw upon many specialties to evaluate and litigate complex matters successfully and efficiently.

This practice has included representation under policies ranging from Errors and Omissions (E&O), Directors and Officers (D&O) (for-profit and not-for-profit), Miscellaneous Professional Liability (MPL), Commercial General Liability (CGL), Environmental, Employment Practice Liability Insurance (EPLI) and property and casualty matters.

DeCotiis insurance attorneys are skilled at negotiating, preparing and finalizing settlements quickly and efficiently when this serves a client's interest. That being said, our negotiations are immeasurably aided because plaintiffs’ counsel is well aware that behind the negotiations is the presence of an experienced trial team that is fully prepared to litigate cases if the situation demands it.

The team is well-versed in all the different aspects of preparing and fielding an insurance case – retaining and working with experts, document production and discovery that focusing on the dispositive fact, accurate and detailed exposure estimates and case reporting, and ultimately, the preparation and fielding of a comprehensive, strong case on behalf of insureds.

In addition, DeCotiis also has a diverse professional liability practice in connection with its representation of insureds; i.e., lawyers, doctors, accountants, brokers, agents, directors and officers, realtors and home inspectors. The experience and innovative thinking of the group's attorneys has led to success in jury trials, arbitrations, mediations, administrative proceedings and appellate work. In virtually any forum, and any situation, the litigators of the DeCotiis Insurance practice group have what it takes to provide each insured with a vigorous, effective defense, and each insurer with a knowledgeable, informative partner in handling files, whether straightforward or complex.
