Insurance Counseling & Recovery

Strategies with proven results

Business executives know that the availability of insurance drives many business and litigation decisions. The Insurance Counseling and Recovery Group at Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP (JMBM) assists corporate policyholders in negotiating policy coverages, performs insurance due diligence in commercial transactions, and represents them in coverage disputes with their insurance companies. 

We have recovered hundreds of millions of insurance dollars for our clients, allowing them to recover losses, stay in business, and plan confidently for the future.

JMBM's Insurance Counseling and Recovery Group evaluates coverage involving a wide variety of claims including the following:

  • Business interruption
  • Property damage
  • Natural disasters
  • Directors and officers alleged misconduct
  • Cybersecurity
  • Wrongful termination and other employment practices
  • Securities
  • Disability
  • Government investigation and enforcement actions
  • Unfair competition
  • Environmental liability
  • Trademark infringement
  • Copyright infringement
  • Patent infringement
  • Fidelity bonds
  • Construction defects
  • Personal injury and advertising injury

JMBM's Insurance Counseling and Recovery Group is experienced in negotiating settlements with insurance carriers on behalf of our clients. However, when insurance companies deny meritorious claims, JMBM's litigators are vigorous and capable advocates with a strong record of recovery through litigation—including the recovery of attorneys' fees.

Because we are aggressive advocates in court, our effectiveness at trial practice often paves the way for opponents to seek settlement—which we pursue and structure to our clients' best advantage. 

Our Group includes lawyers with deep experience in areas like intellectual property, hospitality, cybersecurity, environmental law, employment law, and white collar defense, who bring their considerable expertise to the table when negotiating policy coverages and litigating insurance claims.


We understand how difficult it is for organizations to deal with the numerous complex issues when a disaster occurs. JMBM's team has represented companies hit by major disasters—including mass disasters involving significant loss of life and property. We know how to mobilize quickly to assess damage and address the many urgent issues including liability and insurance recovery. We have achieved successful results for our clients, allowing them to survive losses of extreme proportions.

JMBM's disaster recovery team helps find the right consultants and professionals needed to assess and address losses. We also provide guidance to business owners in developing disaster response plans, including reviewing disaster insurance.

JMBM's around-the-clock availability and vigorous advocacy of our clients' interests, is a given. It is our experience in dealing with insurance companies and the successful results we have achieved for clients hit with disasters that set our disaster recovery representation apart from that of other law firms.

JMBM's Insurance Counseling and Recovery Group is committed to helping policyholders maximize their insurance coverage and assert their rights under their policies. With a focus on delivering results, we know how to aggressively advance our clients' positions at every juncture in negotiations and in the recovery process.
