Burns Bowen Bair has been honored by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America as one of the top firms in Wisconsin for the practice of Insurance Law, earning a place on the annual Best Law Firms list.
The firm has built a nationwide reputation in high-stakes litigation against insurance companies, often representing sexual abuse survivors in bankruptcy litigation that seeks recoveries from the insurance policies of churches and other employers of perpetrators. The firm also represents large corporations, corporate boards, and class and individual plaintiffs in insurance matters.
Earlier this year, firm co-founder Timothy W. Burns was honored among the Best Lawyers in America for his expertise in Insurance Law, an honor he has received every year since 2007. Firm co-founder Jesse J. Bair also was ranked on the list of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch for his representation of clients in Commercial Litigation.
