With a national footprint, the Insurance Recovery practice group at Kelley Drye represents individuals and companies across many industries, including construction, energy, manufacturing, real estate development and transportation.
We provide comprehensive counseling throughout the life cycle of a client’s business. This includes guiding clients in the purchase and renewal of coverage, drafting policy language, negotiating vigorously with insurers, evaluating the insurance implications of corporate mergers, developing sophisticated risk transfer strategies and resolving disputes successfully prior to trial.
