Insurance Coverage

As insurance companies continue to provide comprehensive protection packages for a wider variety of businesses and consumers, the potential for coverage-related disputes is greater than it was even a few years ago. The California Supreme Court has handed down important decisions in both the duty-to-defend and property coverage areas, but many issues remain to be decided. Increasingly, coverage-related claims and litigation require experienced and knowledgeable counsel with broad insurance coverage experience.
