Insurance Broker Liability Litigation

We have considerable experience in related insurance litigation areas, including insurance broker liability litigation.
Foley attorneys have represented some of the nation’s largest insurance brokers in broker liability actions alleging errors in the placement of coverage. For example, we recently represented one of the major national brokers in a broker liability lawsuit seeking eight-figure damages relating to a directors and officers (D&O) policy placement. That case was dismissed with no payment by the broker.
