We have substantial experience counseling both insurance companies and policyholders, and we are widely recognized as a leading regional law firm in this field. In fact, several national insurance companies have entrusted us with their litigation in New York State.

We have an extensive practice counseling businesses and insurance companies about insurance coverage. Here our expertise is among the strongest in the area: we helped form New York insurance coverage laws through our participation in litigation that shaped them, particularly in the environmental area. And we represent insurance agencies in the legal aspects of their own businesses, including coverage issues, contracts, financing, business structure, mergers and acquisitions.

On behalf of policyholders, we've handled virtual every type of litigation, including products liability, asbestos exposure, malpractice, personal injury, automobile accidents, negligence and defamation claims.
