Insurance & Reinsurance Litigation

Foley’s Insurance & Reinsurance Litigation attorneys use a multidisciplinary approach to provide comprehensive counseling, litigation, and dispute resolution services to the insurance industry.
Members of our Insurance & Reinsurance Litigation Practice regularly advise companies on questions of contract interpretation and coverage, and represent insurers and reinsurers in actions involving coverage, alleged breaches of contract, negligent claims handling, misrepresentation, bad faith, and fraud. We also are frequently called upon to defend our clients’ policyholders against a wide variety of claims, including labor and employment, securities fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, directors and officers liability, allegations of professional negligence, and product liability.
Our goal is to listen carefully to you so that we understand the business concerns and objectives underlying each individual dispute. Armed with that knowledge, we can develop a plan of action tailored to achieve each of your specific goals. In some instances, that may involve developing creative negotiation strategies or business solutions; in others, it may involve aggressive litigation. Throughout the process, we communicate continuously with — and are guided by — you and work tirelessly on your behalf.

Below we outline the services we offer to our clients.
