Our insurance coverage practice includes policy interpretation and drafting for all lines of insurance, as well as coverage litigation. We regularly advise our clients on insurance coverage issues arising under commercial general liability, construction, homeowners, commercial property, personal and commercial auto, transportation and trucking, professional liability, environmental and toxic exposure, cargo/marine and other multi-line property and casualty coverages.
Members of the Risk Management & Insurance Law Practice Group also have drafted numerous manuscript insurance policy provisions for underwriters, producers and captive insurance programs, addressing such diverse subject matters as construction defect exposures, intellectual property liability risks, liquidated damages and OSHA liability, to name a few. We have litigated some of the most important insurance coverage cases in California history. Among those are appellate and Supreme Court decisions involving the duty to defend, the no-action clause, advertising injury coverage, interpretation of the claims-made coverage trigger, the intentional acts doctrine, the criminal acts exclusion, the supplementary payments provision, the effect of misrepresentation or concealment and the rights and obligations of self-insureds.
