Our team has one objective—to successfully maximize each client’s bottom line by striving for consistent and effective resolution of claims every time. With a national footprint, the Insurance Recovery practice group at Kelley Drye represents individuals and companies across industries, including construction, energy, manufacturing, real estate development, transportation and entertainment.
We handle insurance claims arising under a broad range of policies, including general liability, first-party property, pollution, business interruption, builders’ risk, directors’ and officers’ liability, fiduciary liability, employment practices, commercial crime (employee dishonesty), motion picture/television production, and entertainment errors and omissions policies. We assist clients in responding to communications from insurers to assert their rights to defense and coverage. We also develop sophisticated risk transfer strategies involving contractual indemnity and additional insured agreements.
In addition to helping clients when they are in the recovery phase, we also provide comprehensive counseling throughout the life cycle of their business. This includes guiding clients in the purchase and renewal of coverage, drafting policy language, vigorous negotiating with insurers, in-depth evaluation of insurance implication of corporate mergers, development of sophisticated risk transfer strategies and demonstrated success in dispute resolution prior to trial. And when pre-suit resolution is not attainable, we litigate aggressively and successfully.
