We have no practice groups that benefit by keeping insurers happy.  

Whether we represent the plaintiff or the defendant, the insurance company is always on the other side. 

We are not on any insurer’s list of approved firms, and we do not seek to be.  

We represent both corporations and consumers to maximize insurance recoveries.

Our lawyers have made insurance companies pay over $1 billion since the financial crisis. We have represented many of the largest manufacturers, banks, and mutual funds in their most significant insurance coverage disputes.  

We also have brought path-breaking consumer fraud class actions against major life insurance companies that the federal court in New York described as changing the financial reserving practices of one of the world’s largest life insurance companies.

We do not represent insurance companies.  Period.

We do not seek to institutionalize corporate clients.

We are a referral-driven trial firm that avoids anything getting in the way of accepting referrals against insurance companies.
