We have substantial experience providing highly effective and cost efficient coverage advice, defense services and claims administration services to insurers regarding defense of claims and analysis of coverage questions under a multitude of different policy forms.

Our attorneys have decades of combined experience defending insureds on behalf of our insurer clients in front of all Vermont federal and state courts and administrative agencies. We have handled well over 100 cases through jury trial and/or appeal, including complex or multi-district litigation, on behalf of insured clients throughout Vermont.  We take pride in providing the best defense for our clients possible while also managing the costs of litigation in the most effective manner. In addition to defense work, we regularly advise our insurer clients on coverage issues with opinion memoranda, drafting bilateral reservation of rights letters and non-waiver agreements and coverage litigation through declaratory judgment actions and interpleader. We also represent our insurance clients in declaratory judgment actions arising from disputes over coverage issues. We provide advice on a myriad of different types of policies including CGL, BOP, homeowners, uninsured motorist and other casualty, property and professional liability policies. We also aid our insurer clients in the pursuit and litigation of reinsurance and subrogation claims as well as defend against bad faith claims.  Past and present insurer clients include Liberty Mutual Group, MMG Insurance, Union Mutual Insurance, Vermont Mutual Insurance, The Travelers Companies, St Paul Fire and Marine Insurance, Acadia Insurance and One Beacon Insurance.
