Very little in today’s “flat,” hyper-connected world moves without some form of insurance. From a simple concept hatched at Lloyd’s Coffee House in 1690s London to possibly the most critical business on the planet, today’s defense of insurers and their insureds is no simple matter.
For nearly 35 years Wilson Elser has been closely aligned with the insurance industry, influencing the way it does business, from the clarity of the language in its policies to the types of products it offers to its expansion into every industry. We have been in the business of helping public and private-sector clients identify and prevent exposures and, if they occur, capably managing reaction and recovery. This is our heritage and remains among our greatest strengths. The attorneys of Wilson Elser have the depth and breadth of experience to handle virtually every type of case – from a small claim to the most complex legal matter and all the transactional and jurisdictional issues in between.
As some of the world’s most discriminating buyers of legal services, our clients increasingly look to work with integrated “teams” that can advance their business objectives. We accommodate them through a dynamic operating model that draws on the collective experience and resources of the entire firm in realizing desired legal outcomes. Ever mindful of the increasing economic pressures under which our clients conduct their businesses, we are committed to resolving claims quickly and efficiently. Our practice attorneys regularly access centralized resources and firmwide talent. This type of collaboration frequently spawns innovative and cost-effective solutions to our clients’ most complex legal issues.
We scrupulously attend to every detail in preparing to defend our clients. This is the hallmark of our Insurance Defense attorneys and the principal reason for our enviable track record of success.
