Our insurance clients often face unfounded extra-contractual claims of “bad faith.” Such bad faith litigation can involve high stakes for carriers. And we recognize the difficulties of bad faith claims due to the often ongoing relationship with the suing insured. We regularly advise insurers on the best approach to coverage issues, including the timing and method for negotiation and litigation. We avail our clients with creative approaches to coverage disputes while avoiding additional extracontractual exposure. But our utmost goal remains our ever-present focus – to achieve the best results in the most cost-effective manner.
