Insurance Counseling & Recovery
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
- Wrongful termination and other employment practices
- 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.
